From Bay to Atlanta: Safe Spaces for Asian Americans
Saturday. March 20, 2021 | Noon
Portsmouth Square (Kearny btwn Clay & Washington),
San Francisco Chinatown
This Saturday March 20 at 12 pm, 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.
Our hearts go out to the victims and their families in the shooting in Atlanta, Georgia this week. CCC mourns for the eight precious lives lost to hate and xenophobia. We are disheartened and enraged that the most vulnerable members of our Asian communities continue to be targeted.⠀
We stand against misogyny, xenophobia, white supremacy, and domestic terrorism. ⠀
We imagine a just future through care and creativity.⠀
We are the future, as artists, healers and community builders.⠀
