The tragic shootings that took place in Atlanta yesterday were shocking. The entire Liberty Hill Community denounces this senseless violence against the AAPI community and the tragic loss of life that took place as a result.

This violence is a byproduct of a longstanding issues of racism, misogyny and xenophobia that dehumanize Asian women in particular, paired with a toxic relationship with firearms. The recent surge in anti-Asian rhetoric has only served to amplify the incidents of hate speech and violence perpetrated against the AAPI community.

We at Liberty Hill stand in solidarity with the Asian community, mourn the loss of lives, continue to fight against white supremacist terror, and are committed to standing alongside you to ensure the rights and dignity of all people are respected and protected.
