Calling Our Community to Stand with Asian (AAPI) Neighbors to Stop Hate
March 19, 2021
NOVATO, CA: NIOT Novato stands with our Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community
in grief and in solidarity against racist violence and the everyday attacks that are occuring in our
country and communities. Of the eight people murdered in Georgia on Tuesday, six were Asian
women and their names are now among the more than 3,800 people that have been attacked since
the pandemic began as reported by Stop AAPI Hate. That’s nearly a 2,000 percent increase in
incidents that include shunning, slurs, and physical assaults.
