The Asian American Bar Association of the Greater Bay Area denounces white supremacy, neo-Nazis, and racism. We are horrified by the hatred, bigotry, and violence demonstrated at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville. AABA calls upon President Trump to condemn the hate groups in unequivocal terms.

We grieve with the families of Heather Heyer and all other victims of this domestic act of terrorism. We applaud the DOJ Civil Rights Division for opening an investigation and urge federal and state authorities to prosecute this hate crime to the fullest extent of the law.
