The American Theatre Wing vehemently condemns the unacceptable and escalating attacks, harassment, and violence directed at people of Asian descent, including last week’s tragic shooting in Atlanta. We denounce hate crimes and racism in any form.

We stand in solidarity with the Asian American and Pacific Islander Community, and acknowledge the history and struggles deeply rooted in Anti-Asian racism. To take action with us, please use the following resources to #StopAAPIHate
