Dear Friends and Family,
We are devastated and heartbroken by the tragedy that happened in Atlanta, Georgia. We are feeling so much grief, anger, and fear for the people of our community. We cannot fathom how this kind of hateful crime can be done to anyone.
JASM is here to stand with all Asian American communities. Our mission still is to connect people to learn about each other and grow together. Please check in with your Asian friends and family, let them know that they are loved. Please hear Asian people’s voices by asking them to share their stories. Although the vicious hateful acts have occurred, they will not stop us from carrying on with what we are here to do. JASM will continue to create spaces for everyone to come together and show love and care to one another. Please join us and let your community know you welcome everyone.
Meanwhile, here are some organizations you can support to stay connected and make positive impact for our community.
Stop AAPI Hate
Asian Americans Advancing Justice (Asian Law Caucus)
Coalition of Asian Pacifics in Entertainment (CAPE)
