WASHINGTON, D. C. – The following statement should be attributed to Robert Fisher, Verizon Senior Vice President, Federal Government Relations:

“Verizon has long supported efforts to end discrimination. Today, Verizon continues this tradition and stands with the Asian American Pacific Islander community against hate and xenophobia.

H.Res. 908 and S.Res. 580 were introduced by Rep. Grace Meng (D-NY) in the House of Representatives and Sens. Kamala Harris (D-CA), Tammy Duckworth (D-IL), and Mazie Hirono (D-HI) in the Senate. Their resolution shines an important light on the increased rates of attacks on Asian Americans due to COVID-19 and calls on public leaders to condemn and denounce anti-Asian sentiment which has no place in our society.

Verizon applauds these sponsors for their leadership and supports final passage of this resolution.”
