The National Building Museum stands in solidarity with the AAPI community, including those in the District’s Chinatown who built and preserved our diverse neighborhood, rich in tradition and culture. The increase in violence and hate against the Asian community and the recent murders of eight people in Georgia is abhorrent. We stand with the families and loved ones of Daoyou Feng, Hyun J. Grant, Suncha Kim, Paul Andre Michels, Soon C. Park, Xiaojie Tan, Delaina Ashley Yaun, and Yong A. Yue.
We will continue our work to call out these injustices and contribute to the conversation about how to create more just and equitable cities.
