MADISON – Assembly Democratic Leader Gordon Hintz (D-Oshkosh) released the following statement in response to the shootings last night in Atlanta, which took the lives of eight people:

“Racism and anti-AAPI rhetoric is not new to this country. The tragic shootings that transpired in Atlanta last night are a product of fear mongering and xenophobia that has been sowed and heightened against the AAPI community under the previous administration.”

“Hate has no home in our community. We must all commit to taking action to root out anti-AAPI rhetoric where it exists here in our country and in our state.”
