oregon rises above hate
WE ARE HERE TO GIVE VOICE TO AANHPI (ASIAN, ASIAN AMERICAN, NATIVE HAWAIIAN, PACIFIC ISLANDER) 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 AANHPI (Asian, Asian American, Native Hawaiian, Pacific Islander) community leaders who want to defeat anti-Asian hate through targeted government action, broad educational programs, and by harnessing the power of the entire AANHPI 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 AANHPI 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 AANHPI community to create a better place for all.
