AARP 乐龄会加州主任 Nancy McPherson 寄语:关于针对亚裔美国人和太平洋岛民(Asian American and Pacific Islander)的仇恨犯罪

近日,加州出现了一波针对亚裔美国人和太平洋岛民(AAPI)社区令人紧张的种族冲突暴力和骚扰。更令人不安的是,年长者事实上也成为了种族主义的攻击目标。 AARP 乐龄会强烈谴责所有种族冲突暴力和骚扰行为。 种族主义是让我们的社会受到破坏性、分裂性言辞和暴力行为影响的毒药。我们必须致力于阻止任何形式的种族主义——而这需要社区内所有成员的承诺。 AARP 乐龄会深信,我们必须要齐心协力阻止种族主义,并努力揭露种族主义说辞的本来面目。用 AARP 乐龄会创始人 Ethel Percy Andrus 博士的话来说,「如果我们不满意事情现在的样子,就必须要关心事情可能变成的样子」。我们能够且必须联合起来阻止社区内的种族主义和仇恨。 我们必须全力争取让我们的社区变得平静而和睦,并且必须拒绝可对社区繁荣所需的安全和保障造成威胁的侮辱性成见和暴力说辞。 AARP 乐龄会敦促所有人造访加州检察总长网站 www.oag.ca.gov/hatecrimes,从而了解关于如何对抗种族主义,以及如何报告种族主义暴力和骚扰的更多资讯。如要了解受害者如何保持安全以及旁观者如何提供帮助,请造访stopaapihate.org/together。
