May 30th: Stopping Asian Hate – Asians and Allies United!

Tragically, 2020 & 2021 saw a dramatic increase in anti-Asian hate crimes and assaults against Asian women, men, children, and elders. In Canada, there was a 714% increase in hate crimes against Asian community members in Vancouver.  The Atlanta City Shootings on March 16, 2021 where 6 Asian women were killed by a White gunman was the culmination of years of anti-Asian rhetoric, discriminatory practices, stereotypes, and dehumanization, particularly online during the COVID-19 Pandemic. 

We are convening youth groups, faith-based organizations, government representatives, advocacy organizations, and community leaders to join together on May 30th to denounce Asian Hate, promote solutions, and highlight the staunch allyship that exists to support the Asian community. 

There is no registration link, the event will be simulcasted to YouTube live:
