Jimmy Van Bramer Responds to Anti-Asian Hate Crime at 21st St-Queensbridge Station

The virus of anti-Asian hatred will remain well after COVID is under control, and it's up to us to work with impacted communities to keep them safe

Today, a man pushed a thirty-five year old Asian man in front of a F train at 21st St-Queensbridge Station. The victim is currently in stable condition at Mount Sinai hospital in Queens.

NYC Council Deputy Leader Jimmy Van Bramer (D-Sunnyside) responded:

"Death by racism is real, and I'm relieved that the man who was shoved onto the tracks at 21st St-Queensbridge station is in stable condition. This is a hate crime and the perpetrator must be held accountable. But the virus of anti-Asian hatred will remain well after COVID is under control, and it's up to us to work with impacted communities to keep them safe and inoculate the broader society against the hateful lies that put them in harm's way. Queens is home to the largest Asian population in the city, and we are a better borough because of it."
