In support of the AAPI community

Post by Nenya »

This week, members of the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community in Georgia were targets of a horrific act of violence. The lives of eight people were brutally stolen, and the damage done to their families and communities will never fully heal.

But acts of bigotry, cowardice, and brutality towards the AAPI community have not been exclusive to this one “bad day.” Rather, the history of America has been intertwined with such events. We must acknowledge and confront this ugly past to have any hope of breaking the cycle.

The New England Anime Society and Anime Boston stand with the Asian American and Pacific Islander community. We know that America’s strength is in the diversity, acceptance, and embracement of its people.
