In Support of AAPI Communities

Cohen Veterans Network has joined with 40+ other organizations to affirm that violence against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders is violence against our entire community, and such activity – like all hate-based activity – is fundamentally wrong in every way, anti-American, and unpatriotic.

CVN condemned violence against Asian Americans in February to let that community know that we stand ready to assist our veterans and military families who may have been impacted by these events. We hope you will join us in standing in solidarity with our Asian American communities and offer support to those who are suffering.

Read our joint statement:

We, the undersigned organizations committed to supporting service members, veterans, caregivers, survivors, and their families, write to express our strong condemnation of the recent wave of violence against individuals of Asian descent in our country, and to express our solidarity with Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders have strong representation among our veterans and military families. They are patriots who have strengthened the fabric of our nation, they have fought and won our wars, they have borne the burden of battle and cared for those who have borne that burden.

We affirm that violence against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders is violence against our entire community, and such activity – like all hate-based activity – is fundamentally wrong in every way, anti-American, and unpatriotic. We urge all members of the military and veteran family community, and all Americans who feel they may be targeted by discrimination, to seek help through their military chain of command, our organizations, or through law enforcement agencies in your area.
