New York, NY (January 19, 2023) — Committee of 100, a non-profit membership organization of prominent Chinese Americans, today issued the following statement on the recent violent attack of an 18-year-old student at Indiana University that law enforcement said was racially motivated:
“The recent stabbing of an Indiana University student of Chinese descent is horrific, deplorable, and inexcusable. This type of hate and violence is unacceptable,” said Zhengyu Huang, President of Committee of 100. “We urge groups and organizations across all communities to join with Committee of 100 as we collectively work towards concrete actions that will address the roots of the violence and xenophobia and bring an end to these bias-motivated attacks. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Indiana University student and her family at this time.”
