This event is hosted by the Asian Minnesotan Alliance for Justice (AMAJ), a collective of Asian American organizations dedicated to fighting for solidarity and justice in MN. The events in Georgia last week were devastating to our community. In the last year, and particularly the last few months, we have seen an increase in attacks and violence directed towards Asian American communities around the United States. This includes attacks targeting our elderly in Asian communities, it includes verbal and physical harassment in public and private spaces, includes 33 Vietnamese community members who were just deported by ICE, and it includes the deaths of Christian Hall and Angelo Quinto, who were recently killed by the police. This is all anti-Asian hate and violence. Our communities are in pain and looking for support. This moment demands all of us, as Minnesotans, to come together to think critically about the moment we are in and move us towards a place of healing and justice.
- Join us for a public community event to hear from leaders and community members about what has been occurring in Minnesota and nationwide, hear from victims of hate, and work together with us to take action against violence and hate.
- Speakers include U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, MDHR Commissioner Rebecca Lucero, CAAL Network & Executive Director Bo Thao-Urabe, and others
