    The Statement on Anti-Asian Racism in the Time of COVID-19

    The Statement on Anti-Asian Racism in the Time of COVID-19

    The Asian American Christian Collaborative (AACC) is committed to amplifying the voices, issues, and histories of Asian Americans, both within the church and society at large. Specifically, in this season, they have created a statement titled the “Statement on Anti-Asian Racism in the Time of COVID-19”. It says, in part: “We, the undersigned, join together as Asian American Christians and community leaders to denounce the current rise in overt anti-Asian racism throughout our country."

    Today, we speak with three of the drafters of this statement: Pastor Raymond Chang, Pastor Gabriel J. Catanus, and Rev. Dr. Jeff M. Liou.

Kay coles James

Loved hearing her perspective and the way she explained so much! This gave me actual steps to move forward! Thank you!

erinmichelleo ,

Yes! And thank you!

Y’all hit. it. out. of. the. park with this one. I love what both of you are on. Love your hearts and your words! In the last few months, between all of the ways I have learned more about and listened to both of you, it has for sure crossed my mind,”I must work with them!” 😆 That’s my 7 wing going off.

IJM has my heart. Modern-day slavery, kidnapping and human trafficking has got to go! I love the work you’re doing and appreciate the act of not only rescuing but then restoring. Having adopted two special needs children from China I am all too aware of their vulnerability to such a horrific end.

Be the Bridge is SUCH an amazing organization/movement that is much too much overdue. Systemic racism is finally, finally being brought to the media and the masses. Thank you for the education and the action steps. 🙌🏼🙌🏽🙌🏿
