#STOPASIANHATE: YWCA Stands in Solidarity with AAPI Communities
At YWCA, we are unwavering in our demand for justice and in our commitment to creating a world in which all women, girls, and people of color can thrive. This is why we are devastated by the ongoing violence against Asian Americans that has ravaged our country during such a trying time, and we send our condolences to the lives lost in Georgia last week. Additionally, the mass shooting in Colorado reminded us of the horrors of hate that often feeds into gun violence. Two times in one week, our nation was ravaged by mass shootings, which make it clear that the tragic incidents of gun violence and hateful domestic terrorism have plagued our country for far too long.
These events have invigorated YWCA’s commitment to addressing structural inequality and racism across all communities of color, deepening our work to advocate for equity and justice. All Americans, especially people of color, should feel safe in spas, grocery stores, schools, churches, and in their own communities. We have and will continue to do this work; demanding a safe world of equity and human decency until injustice is rooted out until institutions are transformed, and until justice just is.
