Stand Up and Speak Out

Date

We at Compassionate Atlanta grieve the 8 lives lost to gun violence in three massage parlors yesterday in Metro Atlanta. We denounce targeted acts of violence. We stand in solidarity with our Asian and Asian American neighbors as they try to process this unthinkable crime.

We compel our communities to stand together, to recognize our common humanity and bring compassion to how we relate to one another. We belong to each other.

We encourage you to stand up and speak out when you see and hear anti Asian rhetoric and any racist behavior. Support the groups that are doing the work to eradicate hate.

Signed,

Leanne and Iyabo
Co-Directors
Compassionate Atlanta
