My heart breaks for our sisters who were murdered in Atlanta, Georgia. This is a hate crime fueled by white supremacy and racism against Asian Americans. We need to address these dangerous hates.
Since the pandemic, anti-Asian violence has escalated to 150%. Asian Americans across the country have been living in fear for being targeted. We have been mocked as the “Kung Flu.” We have been harassed in public. Our businesses have been vandalized. Our seniors have been attacked for simply walking on the streets in broad daylight. Our women have been sexualized, fantasized, beaten, and shot.
These hateful acts need to be condemned. Let’s come together as a nation to #stopAsianHate.
