In response to the increasing and escalating acts of violence targeting Asians and Asian Americans, most recently the murder of 8 Asian women at three different locations yesterday in Metro Atlanta, SisterLove issues the following statement:
SisterLove strongly condemns all acts of hate and racism against Asians. We ALL must speak up and out against the display in the rising violent incidents of anti-Asian hate crimes in both Atlanta and across the globe. Racism of any kind is abhorrent and cannot be tolerated!
Further, all the murdered women in Atlanta were low-wage earners in highly vulnerable jobs which is a component or misogyny and violence against women. SisterLove's work will continue to speak out in support of women's rights which is human rights!!
We stand should to shoulder with the Asian community and demand every measure be taken to make their safety a priority.
