Stop Asian Hate March
AsiaTown in Cleveland
March 28, 2021

Sadly and tragically there has been a rise in anti-Asian violence and racism because of the Corona virus. This was brought to national attention by the tragic, senseless act when a man fatally shot eight people, including six Asian women, at Atlanta-area spas.

Justifiable outrage has led to numerous marches and vigils. This included a #StopAsianHate March in Cleveland's AsiaTown on Sunday March 28 from 1-4 PM.

Even before the virus Anti-Asian discrimination has been very real and causes great pain, fear, and trauma for many in our community. Harassment, racial slurs, and threatening behavior have become far too common here and are completely unacceptable. Events such as this not only help unify the Asian community but shows them that they have friends and allies in other communities. Whether Asian heritage or not, it is essential for all of us to speak up and stop anti-Asian harassment, slurs, threats and beyond if we witness it and to help prevent it from happening in the first place.
