Gusto Letter to Congress Condemning Attacks on AAPI Communities

Gusto Editors  

On April 8, 2021, Gusto CEO Joshua Reeves sent a letter to Congress calling for the passage of Senate Resolution 133 (“S.Res. 133”), a resolution condemning all forms of anti-Asian sentiment as related to COVID-19.

The COVID-19 pandemic has upended the lives of all Americans and has uniquely impacted Asian American and Pacific Islander (“AAPI”) communities. Since the onset of the pandemic, media outlets have reported a dramatic increase in violence against people of Asian descent. S.Res. 113 calls on federal law enforcement officials to investigate and document all credible reports of hate crimes, expand data collection and reporting of hate crimes relating to COVID-19, and hold perpetrators accountable.

Gusto believes that AAPI-owned small businesses, and the AAPIs that work in small businesses, are critical to the success of America. The letter highlights the significant financial challenges the AAPI community has faced throughout the pandemic, including challenges accessing government relief programs.
