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.
