Dear friends, dear community,
With tenderness and mourning on our hearts, the Sit Walk Listen organizers invite you to gather in front of San Francisco’s City Hall this Sunday from 11am - 1pm PT to grieve the eight lives lost in Atlanta, Georgia this past Tuesday. Six of those killed were of Asian descent, seven were women, two were white.
White supremacy affects all of us. Since March 2020, about 3,800 racist incidents against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders have been reported to Stop AAPI Hate. Let us join together against anti-Asian racism and discrimination, and amplify the calls for a more peaceful, just society.
Xiaojie Tan, Daoyou Feng, Delaina Ashley Yaun, Paul Andre Michels, Julie Park, Hyeon Jeong Park, plus two as of yet unnamed. We say the names of those who should be alive today as we work towards justice alongside our Asian sisters, brothers, and kin. This itself is a healing practice learned from Black women in their struggle against white supremacy and police brutality against Black, brown, and Indigenous peoples, and all people of color.
