Atlanta was the most horrific recent example of abuse and violence focused on the Asian American and Pacific Islander communities in this country. A clearly racist attack, this event follows an intolerable spike in anti-Asian bigotry and hate incidents since the start of the pandemic, and it builds on a long history of racism and violence against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in this country. There are several things that we as a community can do to stand in solidarity with our AAPI sisters and brothers.
One of them is to support the AAPI Community Fund. Leaders of AAPI organizations that I work with started the Fund to support organizations that empower and uplift the AAPI community, with initiatives such as increased community safety and support for those affected by violence.
For those who want to give to GA specifically, I highly recommend Asian Americans Advancing Justice - Atlanta.
And you can speak out and stand up when you see this shit happening.
