With hate crimes targeting Asian Americans surging, it’s time to say enough is enough. This Friday, March 26, join the Asian American community for a Virtual Day of Action and vow to #StopAsianHate.
The Asian American community is still reeling from last week’s shooting rampage at three Asian-owned spas in the Atlanta, Georgia area in which eight people were murdered.
The Combat Anti-Semitism Movement (CAM) stands in solidarity with Asian Americans, and all other minorities facing bigotry. Only united can we overcome prejudice.
Ending anti-Asian violence will require people to speak up about the growing problem. The first step you can take is to post a message of support for the Asian American community on Friday on social media using the hashtag @StopAsianHate.
The date was chosen because on March 26, 1790, the Naturalization Act was signed into law, prohibiting non-white people from becoming citizens of the US, and over 200 years later Asians in the US are still suffering from the effects of racism.
