Stop Asian Hate
I join people everywhere in mourning the victims of last night’s horrific shootings in Atlanta. Condolences to the families of each of the victims. Prayers for everyone touched by this tragedy.
Regardless of the killer's motivation, six of the eight victims were Asian American women. These murders come amidst a nationwide rise in violence, discrimination, and xenophobia directed against the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community.
These murders are the most recent and visible manifestations of racism and racial injustice and reaffirm the need for all of us to step up and protect ALL of America's marginalized communities.
We condemn all acts of violence and hate against Asian-Americans, and the pervasive discrimination and stereotyping harming Asian American lives.
We stand up against racism, wherever and whenever we find it.
We unite to build power to transform systemic racism and white male supremacy.
