“Global Cleveland stands united against racism and hate against our Asian American Pacific Islander community. The horrific surge in violence and hate-crimes that is happening across our country is unacceptable, and we must work to continue to stand in solidarity with our AAPI brothers and sisters. We condemn all forms of hate and are committed to rectifying racial inequalities in our society.

Our hearts go out to the reported shootings of Asian American women on Tuesday in Atlanta, for the victims’ families, other victims of the hate crimes throughout the country, and the entire AAPI community.  As a society, we must undergo a revolution of values to understand these communities’ struggle, heritage, and contribution to the nation and its culture We need to choose solidarity over division and resistance over complicity as we keep building a future that works for everyone.”
