Today, the Partnership issued the following statement against the hate crimes of the Asian-American and Pacific Islander community.
“New York City business calls for an end to hate crimes against Asian-Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI),” said Kathryn Wylde, President and CEO of the Partnership for New York City. “The AAPI community makes up more than 16% of our city’s population, including many thousands of small business owners and essential workers. We applaud the contributions they make to our city and stand against the abuse they have suffered. We thank Congresswoman Grace Meng for her leadership in this effort to combat hate and violence.”
