An Important Message in support of the Asian-American and Pacific Islander descent Communities
Racially motivated hate crimes and harassment have been systemic in America for people of color and other vulnerable populations for hundreds of years. More recently, specific targeting appears to be focused on members of the Asian American and Pacific Islander descent communities. Contributing to this unfortunate surge in these hateful and vicious acts of crime is the lack of speaking against the building of such a destructive climate that seems to have heightened in recent years.
Very much like the COVID-19 virus pandemic, hate is a virus that must be uprooted at its core. We cannot allow it to further harm the condition of race relations in America. It is deplorable and unacceptable. America is a country of immigrants and all its citizens must be treated with dignity, respect, and humility.
We at the Diversity Leadership Alliance stand for equity and justice for ALL. Today we stand strong and united in solidarity with our Asian American and Pacific Island Brothers and Sisters.
As the great Dr. King wrote…
“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere”
