KCCAA Statement on Anti-Asian Violence & Hate Crime

March 26, 2021

The Kansas City Chinese American Association (KCCAA) strongly condemns the rise of Anti-Asian Violence and Hate Crime across our country. We were heartbroken by the Atlanta shooting on Tuesday March 16, 2021. The loss of eight lives, including six Asian women, is one of many tragic acts of violence against Asians in our country recently. Our hearts go out to the victims and their surviving family members. We also want to express our thoughts of comfort and condolence to the entire Asian American community.

Since March 19th, 2020, there have been more than 3,795 hate crimes and incidences of racism reported to the “Stop AAPI (Asian American and Pacific Islander) Hate” organization.

All these reported cases only represent a fraction of the true total number of incidents.

Protests and vigils calling for a stop to the violence against Asian-Americans have held in many cities around the country. Hate violence and crime toward people of color, including Asian Americans, is NEVER acceptable and will NOT be tolerated.

As a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization, KCCAA has dedicated and held a longstanding commitment to supporting our local community. Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have worked tirelessly to donate large amounts of personal protective equipment (PPE) and financial support to our local hospitals, health clinics, police departments, nursing homes, and to schools in low-income communities. Today, again, we are with you all, together, to FIGHT and STOP the Anti-Asian Violence and Hate Crime.

We invite the community to join us in defeating racial violence and ensuring the communities we live in are a safe place for all. If you see a fellow Asian American in a dangerous situation, please intervene if possible, call for help, and document the incident to bring the perpetrator to justice. If you know of an Asian American elder who might be fearful of going out to the grocery store, please offer to go with them. It‘s time to speak up and take action to STOP hate violence and crime before more innocent lives are lost.

Lastly, we welcome community residents to join us together to encourage our local government and law enforcement agencies to …
