“We at KRC are heartbroken to hear about yesterday’s shooting that killed 8 people in Atlanta, including six Asian American women. Our hearts go out to all the victims’ families and ⁠⁠to all our AAPI community members across the country who are processing this news and feeling a heightened sense of fear, anger, and grief. ⁠⁠It is hard to find the right words in the face of this appalling tragedy. As the details of this incident continue to unfold, we will be sharing resources and ways to offer care and support. ⁠⁠

⁠⁠”민족학교는 어제(16일) 조지아주 애틀랜타에서 발생한 총격 사건에 대한 소식을 듣고 가슴이 무너지는 느낌입니다. 이번 총격으로 인해 8명이 숨졌고 그 가운데 6명이 아시안계 여성이었습니다. ⁠⁠
모든 희생자의 가족은 물론, 공포와 분노, 슬픔을 ⁠⁠느끼고 있는 아시안계 이민자들에게 심심한 애도의 뜻을 전합니다. 우리는 이 끔찍한 비극을 어떻게 표현해야 할지 그조차도 가늠하기 힘듭니다. 이 사건에 대한 자세한 내용이 나오는 것에 맞춰 민족학교는 ⁠⁠우리가 할 수 있는 지원 방법과 정보를 공유하겠습니다.⁠⁠
⁠기억하세요. 민족학교 핫라인은 213 709 3685입니다. 한국어로 도움을 받을 수 있습니다.⁠⁠”
