ATASK Condemns Anti-Asian Hate
We are enraged and heartbroken by the murders of 8 lives in Atlanta, 6 of whom were Asian women. We cannot ignore that this has come at a time of increased terrorizing hate and violence against our Asian American communities.
Racism against Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities is deeply entrenched in American history, but too often has been overlooked and rendered invisible by white supremacy and normalized anti-Asian rhetoric. AAPI men have been scapegoated. AAPI women have been violently hypersexualized. All AAPI groups have been dehumanized.
We stand with the victims and survivors of the Atlanta shootings, and with all victims of hate and racial bias. We stand with all our brothers and sisters who feel unsafe today and everyday. As we mourn, we demand that our leaders at all levels who have been absent, silent, or complicit do the hard work of creating antiracist policies and stand up for ALL victims of racial hate and oppression.
Town Hall on Anti-Asian Racism
The COVID-19 pandemic has fueled xenophobia and anti-Asian racism. But Asian Americans have experienced violence long before the pandemic. Join our town hall highlighting how the Asian American community in MA is organizing against racism and learn how to support our community during the pandemic.
