In the course of conversations about these street attacks, I have learned a new term for what we must all find the courage to be, instead of being a bystander, be an UPSTANDER. I am watching with gratitude from Santa Barbara CA

Last month, 3 weeks after the Atlanta shootings we held a visibility vigil in our community, gathering our diverse diaspora of Asian nationalities here, inviting restaurant, market, nail salon, and massage parlor owners and their families and staff. It was a powerful experience, the first time in our community for this kind of visible presence. It was moving and we are organizing from this turnout.

Bel, I agree. All minorities, LGBTQ and discriminated groups should come together. With numbers, we have power to make change.
David Lee

I’ve been curious about the response from Republican AAPI electeds on this… do any of you know if AAPI Republicans are doing the important work that needs to happen within their party both locally and nationwide?
Sharon Hoshida

Indeed, it is time for BIPOC and LGBTQI communities to stand together in solidarity.
Laurie Trieger

I’m a restorative justice facilitator. When I read comments about the many crimes that have been happening, I see great controversy among AAPIs about alternatives to our current justice system. Would like to hear your thoughts.
