A Statement from PFSC

The Pasadena Figure Skating Club joins with our governing body, the United States Figure Skating Association, to condemn anti-Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) hate crimes. According to a study from California State University, San Bernardino, hate crimes against AAPI communities have increased 164% in 16 of America’s largest cities in the last year. We pledge to ensure that our club events are safe spaces for our AAPI members. We do not tolerate hate speech or other forms of discrimination within our Club. To learn more about the AAPI experience in the figure skating community, please check out the USFS Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Task Force’s Instagram Live series during AAPI Heritage Month. #StopAsianHate

The second USFS DEI Task Force AAPI Heritage Month Instagram Live is TODAY (May 13, 2021) at 2:00 P.M. Pacific. It will feature Michelle Kwan.
