From the Bay to Atlanta on our minds and in our hearts 從灣區到亞特蘭大,我們一直與您同.


Our community is hurting, angry, tired, and heartbroken. This Saturday March 20 at 12 pm noon, we will hold a community space to mourn the 8 people murdered during the mass shooting in Georgia, 6 of whom were Asian women, and we stand with the elderly woman who defended herself against the racist attack in SF earlier this week. Waves of attacks have been directed against all Asian American women and community- join us in creating a space where we vent, grieve, and show care for each other in the wake of what is happening, as we work towards safety for all.

We condemn all forms of racist and sexist violence. All of us, especially women and low-wage and essential workers, deserve to go about our daily lives - go to work and school, take a walk to get groceries - in a safe and healthy community without being afraid of injury or death. Racism, economic inequality, and gender-based violence are at the root of this problem, and our solutions to address this violence must address all in order to be truly safe.


We need comprehensive culturally responsive victim support, resources for community-based safety and prevention programs in Asian American communities, and continued organizing in our communities. For our voices to be heard together, we must heal and tend to the wound in our communities and beyond together. Let’s come together to make art, be in community and support one another.
