*Content Warning: Mass shootings, police murders*
Chúc Mừng Năm Mới and Happy Lunar New Year. We started this year with heavy hearts as we heard of mass shootings that occurred in Monterey Park, Half Moon Bay, and many other communities across the country. We are sending care to everyone who is grieving and processing during one of the most important and celebratory times for our Asian American community. For our full statement on the shootings, please refer to our post here.
We are also distraught by the murders of Keenan Anderson, Takar Smith, Oscar Sanchez, Tyre Nichols, and countless other Black and brown lives by the hands of police. Despite the massive protests against police violence globally in 2020 after George Floyd’s murder, 2022 was a record year for police killings – the highest in almost a decade. Our hearts are with their families and community. If you have the means, consider contributing to the memorial funds for the following community members: Oscar Sanchez, Keenan Anderson, and Tyre Nichols.
