Race & Racism
As an organization dedicated to building understanding and connections between cultures and peoples, Asia Society stands in solidarity with the Asian, Asian American, and Black communities — and all people around the world threatened by racism and violence.
We are — as ever — committed to dialogue that fosters greater cross-cultural understanding, empathy, and healing in our hope for a more equitable and just society.
