Since the start of the pandemic, there has been an increase in violence against the Asian and Pacific Islander community, and over the last few weeks in particular, there has been a rise of anti-Asian violence especially across the US. At Sony Interactive Entertainment, we reject racism, bigotry, and hate against Asian Americans or any other community. 

As a company committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion, and to human rights of all people, we are troubled by the recent pattern of violence targeting the Asian American community. It is time to take action!

As a first step, SIE is donating to Stop AAPI Hate, a California based organization created in partnership with San Francisco State University. We also want to share their resources for the API community and all allies to learn how to report incidents and stay safe during these troubled times. 

Let’s continue to work together to ultimately create a world where everyone belongs.
