We want to acknowledge the pain and grief our communities are experiencing in response to the attacks on Asians and Asian Americans, especially our elders and women. If we look back in history we know that this isn’t the first time the Asian community has experienced violence. When addressing the attacks on Asian we must also acknowledge the history of violence our communities have endured on the systemic, state, and interpersonal level. We cannot individualize a historically rooted and systemic issue. We need solidarity between the Asian community and other BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color). We need to show up for each other. We want to thank those who are committed to ending violence against Asians and Asian Americans. 100% of proceeds will go towards @AAPIWomenLead.
