oregon rises above hate
We are excited to announce that we sponsor the OREGON RISES ABOVE HATE event on MAY 14, 2022 at the JAPANESE AMERICAN HISTORICAL PLAZA.
WE ARE HERE TO GIVE VOICE TO AAPI COMMUNITY MEMBERS WHO HAVE LONG BORNE THE PAIN OF RACISM AND BIAS IN SILENCE. WE ARE PROUD OF OUR DIVERSE BACKGROUNDS AND FAMILIES. WE WILL NOT LET THOSE WHO SPREAD LIES, FEAR, AND HATE ABOUT US DEFINE WHO WE ARE OR OUR PLACE IN SOCIETY. WE STAND TALL AND WORK TO ENSURE THAT HATE WILL FIND NO SHELTER HERE, POINTING OUT WHITE SUPREMACY WHEN WE SEE IT.
Oregon Rises Above Hate is the result of a coming together of AAPI community leaders who want to defeat anti-Asian hate through targeted government action, broad educational programs, and by harnessing the power of the entire AAPI community and all Oregonians statewide.
Our event on May 8th kicked off a series of events in furtherance of these goals and is supported by over 50 AAPI and local organizations and businesses. We believe that change will come through unity of purpose, continuous education, and thoughtful action.
We are not seeking donations nor are we a formal organization. We are a common voice seeking to amplify voices in the AAPI community to create a better place for all.
