Falvey Memorial Library Condemns Anti-Asian Violence: Stands with AAPI members of our Villanova community in mourning, outrage, and solidarity
Falvey Memorial Library condemns the racist violence that took place in the Atlanta area last night, which took the lives of eight people, six of them Asian American women. This follows a year in which, according to NPR, “hate crimes against Asian Americans in 16 cities rose by 150 percent.” We stand with the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) members of our Villanova community in mourning, outrage, and solidarity.
We share the resources below in this spirit:
- Statement from the American Library Association

- Fighting Anti-Asian Racism: Tools for Libraries (The Office for Intellectual Freedom of the American Library Association)
