United Way Condemns Violence Against Asian American and Pacific Islander Communities
The United Way of Southwest Alabama mourns with the Asian American and Pacific Islander community—including those in our United Way family—after the murder of eight people, including six women of Asian descent, in Georgia. It’s important that we say their names: Delaina Ashley Yaun, Daoyou Feng, Xiaojie Tan, Paul Andre Michels, Soon Chung Park, Suncha Kim, Yong Ae Yue, and Hyun Jung Grant.
We, at United Way of Southwest Alabama, have committed to building better, stronger, and more equitable communities. To deliver on this promise, we must speak out against racism towards Asian American and Pacific Islanders and protect the basic human rights and freedoms to which they are entitled.
