During this time of the COVID-19 pandemic, many of our Asian community globally has been targeted by racism and xenophobia. We stand with our global community against all racism and xenophobia. Asian Leaders Alliance is working with our ERG members to make a stand together.
The advent of COVID-19 has resurfaced major gaps within our community in regards to racial inequalities and injustices. Particularly for the Asian Pacific Islander (API) community, there has been a dramatic increase in cases of discrimination globally, from racial slurs to violent attacks. We acknowledge that anti-Asian racism is not new. However, such xenophobic bigotry poses a real threat to the well-being of our community, and more than ever, we must unite, speak up, and advocate for increased awareness and support for the API community.
With over 60 Employee Resource Groups (ERGs), 15 Non-Profit Organizations (NGOs), 10 small-to-medium-sized businesses (SMBs), and 360 individual members in the Bay Area-wide and growing, ALA along with your support can help move the needle on this cause together.
Call to Action(s):
RAISE AWARENESS: Knowledge is power. When we are able to bring to the forefront the uptick in anti-Asian racism through storytelling, we are better able to help combat it. You can do so today by participating in our BAYCAT video campaign:
It is crucial that we act in this time of crisis to address the exponential rise of anti-Asian racism together.
