Standing Against Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Hate

In light of the increase in violence towards Asian American and Pacific Islanders, and especially with regard to the murders of six Asian American women, one white man, and one white woman by a white, 21-year-old male terrorist in a violent, killing rampage in Georgia on March 17th, the Women’s Fund SouthCoast speaks out with condemnation. Racism, xenophobia, and misogyny are deeply intertwined at the root cause of this violence. We stand against all forms of violence against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders and have signed on to the statement of solidarity, in partnership with the national Women’s Funding Network. According to Stop AAPI Hate,  “68% of the attacks on Asian Americans in the past year targeted AAPI women, who have historically faced sexualized stereotypes and sexual violence.” As an organization driven by an unwavering commitment to fight for gender justice, we pledge to work toward creating a community, nation, and world in which the systems that oppress AAPI and all marginalized folks are eradicated.
