AHS Statement of Solidarity

 

Asian Health Services stands in solidarity with the Black Community. We are outraged by systemic racism against African Americans, most recently expressed in the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery. Asian Health Services stands united with the African American community and vulnerable, targeted communities of color to forge coalitions, and lift our collective power for social change. A racist attack against any one of us is an attack against all of us.

“People who want to fight against anti-Asian hate who ignore the plight of Black Americans are trying to walk without legs.”
Dr. Tung Nguyen, One Nation Commissioner, Chair, AAPI Progressive Action, June 1, 2020

“The bottom line is this: if we want to bring about real change, then the choice isn’t between protest and politics. We have to do both. We have to mobilize to raise awareness, and we have to organize and cast our ballots to make sure that we elect candidates who will act on reform.”
Former President Barack Obama, June 1, 2020
