To the YSM Community:
The murders last week in Atlanta of members of the Asian community are deeply disturbing to all of us. Sadly, these crimes are only the most recent chapter in the historic racism faced by Asian communities that has intensified during the current pandemic.
This is a safe space for community members to be with one another, be heard, share, and process together. We will have an open conversation regarding the recent killings and violence towards Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) people across our country and the effects on our well-being. This gathering will provide emotional support to the ANY community and our allies during these tense and difficult times
