Taking Action Against Hate Crimes

In light of the rise of violence and hate crimes towards Asian and Pacific Islander Americans, we are reflecting on how we can be better allies. One group of UE children brainstormed ideas. Their suggestions are below.

  • Send a letter - I bet someone who’s lost a family member would like a letter of sympathy from children. 
  • Fundraiser for Georgia victims and families
  • Research Asian American violence - 
  • Learn - Who is this impacting? Where is the violence happening? What age people is it happening to the most? 
  • Chart or Graph - To show how many people have died because of racism before COVID vs. during COVID
  • Banner - Hang it outside 
  • Write letters to law people 

We will be considering these inspiring ideas and moving forward as we can. We are also looking forward to larger projects for May when it is Asian American/Pacific Islander (AAPI) Month. In the meantime, the Thacher Diversity Committee would like to recommend this article as a great adult resource.
