Speak Up and Speak Out Against Violence
The hatred that permeated the global community in 2020 has increased to unprecedented numbers. Amidst the continuing pandemic, violence against Asian and Pacific Islanders has increased nearly by 150% this year – and we’re not even to the halfway point.
These attacks have targeted largely the community’s most vulnerable members: the elderly and the poor.
To this end, a coalition of API nonprofits have banded together to increase awareness of the issue. On April 3, 2021 at 1pm in San Francisco’s Castro District, the coalition will be gathering for a rally to speak out against the violence plaguing the country.
Community leaders, activists, and artists will be joining efforts to speak out against the violence against the API community at the rally.
By unifying their voices, the coalition hopes to generate awareness by amplifying Asian and Pacific Islanders, while simultaneously uplifting the spirits of those who have been affected by these attacks.
Attendees are urged to maintain social distancing guidelines. Masks will be provided for those who do not have access to them
