AAPI CANDLELIGHT VIGIL
Location: Asian American Resource Center (meet at the ground behind the building)
Candles will be provided. Outdoor, socially distanced, wear masks!
Since the murder of Asian women in Atlanta this week, the Asian community has been filled with grief and outrage. During the pandemic, criminal activities against Asians have become rampant, and AAPIs have been living in fear for months now.
We are holding a candlelight vigil this Saturday night to commemorate the innocent lives lost, and to offer support for each other, to not mourn in isolation, and to encourage all to speak up.
We call on society to pay more attention to anti-Asian crimes and on the people of the United States to declare war on hate and crime! #StopAsianHate
