Denouncing strongly all violence and hate against Asian American Pacific Islanders
Statement of Common Council President Cavalier Johnson March 19, 2021
The Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) Coalition of Wisconsin hosted a rally at Milwaukee City Hall, Thursday (March 18) – following the Atlanta spa shootings on Wednesday that left eight dead, including six individuals of Asian descent. I am calling for the full rejection of all acts of racial terrorism and I proudly stand with the AAPI community and the rest of the world in denouncing hatred and violence that is racially motivated.
The strength and solidarity against hatred and violence that I saw at the City Hall event yesterday further demonstrates that the time is now to create a better, safer, and more just country for our families, neighbors and communities.
