The striking surge in hate crimes against Asian-American Pacific Islanders provokes us to speak out and stand together with our fellow Americans of Asian descent. Mutual respect and belonging are deeply ingrained in our culture at Maynard. We denounce racism, prejudice, and violence in all forms. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the victims, and we stand with Maynard’s AAPI employees and the broader AAPI community.

As professionals committed to a diverse and equitable workplace, racism has no place in our society. Maynard is proud to advance justice and to support the work of many organizations doing this important work. To confront this moment with action, we renew our commitment to these ideals with a donation to Asian Americans Advancing Justice | AAJC (advancingjustice-aajc.org), a legal organization that advances civil and human rights for Asian Americans and builds and promotes a fair and equitable society for all through education, litigation, and public policy advocacy. 

As a firm, we remain dedicated to denouncing all forms of discrimination and pledge to continue our efforts as a community to combat racial injustice.
