Regardless of the color of our skin we must all stand against hate. The attached short video is in response to the recent attack in Atlanta on Asian Americans and speaks to all who oppose white supremacy:
"As a person of color, living in this country is a flip of a coin every day. On one side, we are seen as a commodity to be extracted. On the other side of the coin, we are seen as a threat. This is why we must all stand together – to hold each other up when we succeed and when we are attacked. To have each other’s back and speak out with one voice, because we know it will just be a matter of time before the coin is flipped again.
If we stand in solidarity and build together, then we will build power. And only with power can we collectively and finally bury this very American tradition of white supremacy – to no longer be seen as just a commodity or a threat. And to finally start to build a country where we are all seen and heard and given the proper space to just live our lives. Stop AAPI Hate"
