Statement of Rockwell Fund, Inc. on Asian American and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander Heritage Month May 2021
Rockwell Fund, Inc. (RFI) applauds the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) Chair Charlotte A. Burrows’ recognition and acknowledgement of Asian American and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander (AANHPI) Heritage Month and the valuable contributions made by the AANHPI community to the United States of America. As Chair Burrow notes:
“Over the years, AANHPI persons have positively impacted our economy and culture. They have been successful in the business world and the arts, served in the military, and held public office, including Vice President Kamala Harris, who recently became the first person of South Asian descent to hold the Office of the Vice President of the United States.”
The failure to acknowledge the AANHPI community’s contributions and value feed the continuation of episodes of hate crimes targeting this community. Violence, harassment, and discrimination against AANHPI persons is simply intolerable.
RFI appreciates the EEOC’s commitment to combating invidious discrimination. And, as we did after the tragic murder of George Floyd, RFI’s Trustees and staff reaffirm our commitment to using fund resources to support the civil rights of all Americans and to pursue social justice.
We will be part of the solution.
