Supporting our neighbors APA Florida & the EDI Committee Statement on Supporting the AAPI Community
APA Florida and its Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Committee stand with the Asian, Asian American, & Pacific Islander (AAPI) community in condemning the recent brutal act of violent intolerance in Georgia that left eight people dead, six of them women of Asian descent. This is one of many incidents reported across the country in which AAPI people have suffered abuse, harassment, assault, and other violence. Many AAPI women are targeted with both racist and sexist behaviors. This is unacceptable, and we must work together to end it.
As planners, we have a responsibility to further equity, diversity and inclusion in the communities where we live and work to help make them safer and more livable for all people. Please visit https://anti-asianviolenceresources.carrd.co/ to access tools to help fight hate and intolerance, support AAPI communities, and become a better ally through resources like www.ihollaback.org/bystanderintervention. Let’s understand and embrace our differences and become allies with and for groups of people who find themselves targets of hate.
