Ohio Leaders: Denounce Discrimination against Asian Communities
TAKE ACTION NOW
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to take an increasing toll on our country, Asians in America have experienced alarming levels of harassment as well as physical attacks. This is not the first time that marginalized communities—including people of Asian descent—have faced increased harassment and violence in the face of a national emergency.
No amount of fear justifies the prejudice, discrimination, and attacks against Asians that we are seeing today. Racist scapegoating has a long and ugly history that has impacted countless communities of color. It is critical that Asian people feel safe, especially in these extraordinary times. We urge state officials to make clear that any anti-Asian sentiment is un-American.
DENOUNCE THE SPEAD OF XENOPHIBIA AND RACISM! Tell Ohio officials to issue statements declaring that hate, racism, harassment, and discrimination against Asians in America are unacceptable. It is the duty of public officials to uphold the civil and constitutional rights of all individuals regardless of race, ethnicity, nationality, disability, income, or any other protected characteristic.
