We want to start by acknowledging the recent and continued spike in hate crimes against the AAPI community. As an Asian-American led organization, we are calling on our community to come together in solidarity to speak out against the rising tide of anti-Asian violence and xenophobia.
To the AAPI community, we hear you, we support you, and we will speak up for you.
