Statement against Asian American and Pacific Islander hate crimes
The following is a statement on behalf of PCA and PCA’s Asian Advisory Council, Community Engagement:
STOP ASIAN AMERICAN AND PACIFIC ISLANDER HATE CRIMES NOW!
PCA and PCA’s Asian Advisory Council condemn recent targeted acts of violence and victimization against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) that have been occurring across the nation.
Asian and Pacific Islander communities are bright and vibrant parts of our nation’s melting pot and are interwoven in the fabric of the City of Philadelphia. Crimes based in racism or bigotry will never be tolerated. We stand with the Asian and Pacific Islander communities of Philadelphia and call on all of our neighbors to do the same.
