Statement on Stop AAPI Hate

For too long the Asian American and Pacific Islander community has experienced prejudice in our nation. That prejudice and hatred has been increased by the former presidential administration by calling them names and making them responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Today we see increases of attacks, hatred, verbal violence, white supremacy and bigotry against that community in Los Angeles, San Francisco and throughout our nation. Those attacks reflect the smallness of the human capacity to accept all humanity as God’s children and it must stop. 

We must stop the ignorance. We must stop the hate. We must educate our community about the uniqueness of our different cultures. We must all come together to hold those accountable for the destruction of body and soul.

The members and supporters of The Wall Las Memorias say NO to hate! We stand with our brothers and sisters from the Asian American and Pacific Islander community to support them during these difficult and challenging times.

We are ready to walk with you side by side to fight this hate.

Together we will overcome.
