麻州反亞裔種族歧視城鎮會議 3/25 6PM

            (Boston Orange 翻譯)「亞太裔能(APIs Can)」及會員組織,盟友因為在亞特蘭大發生的有針對性8人命案,受害者多為亞裔婦女,憤怒到幾乎不能自已的地步。

             在新冠病毒(COVID-19)期間越來越多,且毫無根據的反亞裔言詞,已助長了反亞裔的仇恨心理及種族歧視。我們在全美見到更多攻擊亞裔事件,尤其是攻擊老年人,而且我們社區的所有成員都沒有了生命安全。從排華法案到日本集中營,到橡木溪錫克廟的射殺,到東南亞裔在學校受不成比例影響,到監獄,到驅逐出境管道,反亞裔的種族歧視在美國歷史中根深蒂固。婦女及女性首當其衝,遭遇的不僅只是種族歧視,還有對亞裔婦女的性別偏見所導致的許多形式暴力,包括我們昨天在喬治亞所看見的。

              作為家務工人,指甲沙龍工人,亞裔婦女在我們的經濟前線;作為持家者,照顧者,亞裔婦女也是我們家庭的中心。亞裔婦女同時生活在社會邊緣,以及移民,性別,種族及階級的交界處。

              我們譴責所有形式的反亞裔社區。我們要求地方,州及聯邦政府:

              支持強大且反應迅速的危機干預資源,包括支持合適語言的精神健康,法律,就業及移民服務。

              從跨族裔對話,以及建造社區做起,把重心放在處理白人至上主義是暴力及仇恨根源的轉型正義。

  • 資助投資於有色社區的非執法策略,以處理長期的系統性種族歧視及極端的不公平 工作,住宅,移民,醫療保險以及教育。要終結暴力,我們必須確保我們的人得到能夠有尊嚴生活的資源及機會,而且
  • 把重心放在倖存者的需要上,以確保任何背景或語言能力的受害者及倖存者,能完整得到多語支持,以及文化上適當的服務,好讓他們得以療癒。

「亞太裔能(APIs Can)」將於325日傍晚67點,主辦論壇,重點強調麻州亞裔社區在組織反種族歧視,並且學習在病毒大流行期間如何支持我們的社區。報名可上網bit.ly/townhallaar

 

Community Organizations Respond to Anti-Asian Violence & the Targeted Murders in Atlanta

APIs CAN and our member organizations and allies are enraged and devastated by the targeted murders of 8 people, most of whom were Asian American women, in Atlanta.

 

Increased and unchecked anti-Asian rhetoric during the COVID-19 pandemic has fueled xenophobia and anti-Asian racism. We have seen a rise in attacks on Asian Americans, particularly elderly people, across the country, and a lack of safety in all aspects of our community members’ lives. From the Chinese Exclusion Act to Japanese Internment to the Sikh temple shooting in Oak Creek to the disproportionate impact on Southeast Asians in the school to prison to deportation pipeline, racism against Asians is ingrained in this country’s history. Women and femmes experience the brunt of not only this racism, but also the sexist stereotypes of Asian American women, which leads to many types of violence, including what we saw in Georgia yesterday. 

 

Asian American women are on the frontlines of our economic sectors, including as domestic workers and nail salon workers. Asian American women are also the center of our family lives as homemakers and caretakers. Asian American women live simultaneously at the margins of society and at the intersection of immigration, gender, race, and class. 

 

We denounce violence against Asian American communities in all forms, and we call on local, state, and federal governments to: 

 

  • Support robust and responsive crisis intervention resources, including in-language support for mental health, legal, employment, and immigration services;
  • Center transformative justice that begins with cross racial dialogue and community-building that address white supremacy as the root cause of violence and hate; 
  • Fund non-law enforcement strategies that invest in communities of color to address long-term systemic racism and extreme inequality -- jobs, housing, immigration, healthcare, and education. To end violence, we must ensure our people have the resources and opportunities they need to lead dignified lives; and 
  • Focus on survivors’ needs to ensure victims and survivors of all backgrounds and language abilities receive full supportive multilingual and culturally appropriate services so they can recover and heal. 

APIsCAN is hosting a forum March 25, 2021 6pm-7:30pm highlighting how the Asian American community in MA is organizing against racism and learning how to support our community during the pandemic. RSVP at bit.ly/townhallaar.
