Allianz Life Statement on the Rise of Violence against the Asian American and Pacific Islander Community

We stand in solidarity with the Asian American and Pacific Islander community and speak out against hate.

We are deeply distraught by and condemn the increase in violence and racism directed at the Asian American and Pacific Islander community. While violence and racism directed toward the Asian community is not new, anti-Asian rhetoric and acts of violence have increased with the COVID-19 pandemic. Allianz Life is committed to fighting racism against Asian American and Pacific Islanders and all members of our diverse community. 

We stand in solidarity with the Asian American and Pacific Islander community and speak out against hate.
