Everyday Asian Americans and immigrants are caught in the crossfire as tensions between the U.S. and Chinese governments grow. An alarming number of politicians and lawmakers today are using geopolitics as an excuse to justify hate and racism against our communities. They’re promoting anti-Asian political rhetoric, discriminatory surveillance measures, and unconstitutional land ownership bans across the country.
This is anti-Asian scapegoating — a political tactic used for centuries by those in power to deflect blame, instill fear, and rile up their voter base at the expense of our safety and our rights. We’re on a mission to stop the hate, stop the blame, and stop anti-Asian scapegoating once and for all.
