A Pledge to Fight Hate Crimes Together

461-4619337_together-against-anti-semitism-symbol-hd-png-download

In recent months, social media has been filled with malicious allegations and misinformation against Chinese people over fears of the COVID-19 coronavirus.

On February 25, 2020, more than 70 Jewish organizations from across the US, including the rabbinical bodies of the four major branches of Judaism, signed a letter of support for Chinese Americans and the Chinese communities.

On May 12, 2020, the New York Times reported that the Anti-Defamation League chronicled more than 2,100 anti-Semitic incidents in the United States in 2019. This is a 12 percent jump from the year before and the most in any year since the Anti-Defamation League began tracking four decades ago. These incidents have been reported in every state except Alaska and Hawaii.

Asian Pacific Islander American Public Affairs (APAPA) pledges our solidarity and support for our Jewish friends by standing shoulder to shoulder alongside them to denounce these incidents of hatred and racial intolerance that have no place in our country. We intend to work with our Jewish brothers in bringing these hate crimes to a halt and erase them forever using whatever social and legal means available.

Asian Americans are relatively new to civil rights, self-empowerment movements and we have a lot to learn from our Jewish friends. With your guidance and mentorship, we will join forces to fight this battle and war in partnership!

Moreover, APAPA will work to mobilize fellow ethnic and mainstream organizations to co-sign this pledge to denounce hate crimes, verbal abuse and all injustices against our fellow citizens!
