In addition to our commitment to stand in solidarity with the AAPI community, we would also like to show our support by donating $1M to be shared by Asian Americans Advancing Justice–AAJC, Stop AAPI Hate, and Asian Pacific Fund’s “Solidarity Fund” for programs and initiatives that address AAPI racial intolerance and its impact.
The news this week of the murders in Atlanta is just the latest in a disturbing pattern of violence against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI). These acts of hate against the AAPI community, including violence against Asians right here in our local Bay Area community, demonstrate the terrible cost of racial intolerance.
I want to restate what I said after the senseless murder of George Floyd: as individuals, as a company, and as a society, we must work toward a world that both acknowledges and values the dignity and humanity inherent in each and every one of us. Acts of racial discrimination and violence go against everything we stand for at Lam.
We stand in solidarity with the AAPI community, many of whom are part of our Lam family. Lam will continue to speak out against racial inequality and violence, and we will support programs and policies that improve diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Together, let’s continue to create a culture that welcomes and celebrates the skills and diversity of thought that come from people from every corner of the world.
President and CEO, Lam Research
