A Statement from the Minnesota Robotics Institute

We know that incidents of bias, harassment, and discrimination are on the rise and impacting international students and Asian Americans. The tragic events in Atlanta are a painful reminder of the hate that our friends, family, and colleagues in the Asian community face everyday.

The Minnesota Robotics Institute stands in solidarity with every member of our community to stop hate and condemn racism, xenophobia, and violence. We ask that everyone joins in spreading this message and actively working to fight for equality and justice for all people.
