The violence perpetrated against the AAPI community, particularly toward our elders, is unconscionable. The absolute eradication of six Asian women this past week in Atlanta, GA is shocking and unbearable. There is so much pain, grief and fear in our community. But we must speak out.
Elders like Pak Ho, Vicha Ratanapakdee, and Noel Quintana are our grandfathers and grandmothers. Soon Chung Park, Hyun Jun Kim Grant, Sun Cha Kim, Yong Ae Yue, Xiaojie “Emily” Tan, and Daoyaou Feng are our mothers and aunties.
