The Board of Directors and Staff of the Chinese American Museum are sickened by the news that eight innocent victims, including six Asian American women, were murdered at the hands of a gunman who went on a killing spree March 16, targeting three Atlanta, Georgia area spas.
Our hearts are broken over these senseless deaths, and we grieve alongside the families and friends of the victims.
