On March 16, 2021 eight people were killed and one person wounded by a white gunman carrying out attacks on three Atlanta-area spas. Among the deceased were six women of Asian descent. Hate crimes and attacks against Asian-Americans have been on the rise in the United States since the COVID-19 pandemic began, yet these attacks often go overlooked or underreported in the media. United Methodists leaders, including bishops, pastors and general agency leaders, have condemned attacks on persons of Asian descent as part the larger campaign to Dismantle Racism. Here are their statements:

BISHOPS – NORTH CENTRAL JURISDICTION

BISHOPS – NORTHEASTERN JURISDICTION

BISHOPS – SOUTH CENTRAL JURISDICTION

BISHOPS – SOUTHEASTERN JURISDICTION

BISHOPS – WESTERN JURISDICTION

GENERAL BOARDS AND AGENCIES

CAUCUSES

OTHER LEADERS
