STANDING IN SOLIDARITY AGAINST RACISM AND IGNORANCE
Hispanic Federation condemns the increase in discrimination and racist attacks against our Asian American brothers and sisters who are being inaccurately and unfairly blamed for the Coronavirus outbreak.
Hispanic Federation has joined with hundreds of Asian American organizations to take a stand against harassment and racism toward Asian Americans and we call upon Latinos across the country to unite with the Asian community to fight back against disinformation and xenophobia. We have signed onto a letter to Congress authored by the National Council of Asian Pacific Americans calling upon Congressional leaders to publicly denounce the increase in racist attacks and discrimination against the Asian American community and have joined with the Asian American Business Development Center to take a stand against discriminatory treatment of Asian Americans.
If we are to win the fight against COVID-19, our nation must come together, put our differences aside, and join in one united effort to defeat this dangerous pandemic.
