Joint Statment Against Racism and Xenophobia During COVID-19 Pandemic

The Doris Duke Charitable Foundation (DDCF) supports Asian American/Pacific Islanders in Philanthropy’s statement renouncing the recent wave of racist and xenophobic acts that have been committed against the Asian and Asian American communities since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. DDCF rejects any and all forms of hate crimes or hate speech against these communities and encourages our colleagues in philanthropy to stand with Asian American individuals, organizations and communities during this difficult time.
