Today’s Action: A response to the anti-Asian hate crimes in Atlanta

Robert Aaron Long, a white man, opened fire at three massage parlors in the Atlanta area, killing eight, including six Asian-American women. Long said the massage parlors were “a temptation he wanted to eliminate,” exhibiting that deadly combination of racism and sexism that Asian-American women have lived under for hundreds of years of white male gaze.

While Atlanta’s law enforcement appallingly minimize Long’s hate crimes as “having a really bad day,” we must collectively push back against this rising trend of white supremacist violence and harassment toward Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI).

INTERRUPT harassment and violence

Bystander intervention is one of the quickest ways to assist in stopping harassment and de-escalating potential violence. Check out Hollaback’s quick guide (3 minutes) to stopping harassment in its tracks when you see it begin.

ADDRESS COVID-specific racism

Trump spent his final year in office drumming up anti-Asian sentiment to cover his own monumental failings addressing the pandemic, and hate crimes against AAPI communities have spiked as a result. Read the Southern Poverty Law Center/Learning for Justice four-steps (3 minutes) to addressing racist language surrounding the pandemic.

DEMAND gun safety laws

This is the most frustrating broken record, but we still need stronger gun safety laws. Georgia scores an ‘F’ in gun safety (and a corresponding 14th-place in deaths by gun violence). Its no-waiting-period law allowed Long to impulsively purchase a gun mere hours before he murdered eight people. Call or email your Members of Congress and demand comprehensive gun safety regulation – and your state reps, with Giffords’ legal recommendations for your specific state.

We will not stop fighting until this country is a safe place for all to live, love, and thrive. Solidarity, strength, and support to our Asian American and Pacific Islander members of the OD Action community.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition demanding an investigation into Trump for allowing Putin to pay Taliban fighters to kill US troops, and be sure to follow OD Action on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
