I remember the first time I felt like an American. On my way cross country to New England to begin my graduate program, I stopped at Port Huron, Michigan to an address handwritten on the back of a black and white photograph of my paternal grandparents. In the 1920s it was the home of Victoria and José Santana.

On March 16, a shooter killed eight people in Atlanta; six of the victims were identified as Asian and seven were women. At least four of the people killed were of Korean descent. The Weingart Foundation stands with communities in our collective grief and outrage at these tragic deaths. We condemn the anti-Asian racism that has led to increased hate speech and violence against Asian American communities.
