GIANTS STAND WITH THE AAPI COMMUNITY AGAINST ANTI-ASIAN HATE AND VIOLENCE
Anti-Asian hate crimes have been occurring in the U.S. at an alarming rate. Although acts of racism and discrimination against the Asian American and Pacific Islander community are not new, these violent and destructive acts have increased dramatically during the COVID-19 pandemic, spurred by anti-Asian rhetoric and misinformation about the virus. In our own Bay Area communities, elderly Asians have been targeted in a number of attacks, and Asian-owned businesses have been vandalized or destroyed.
The San Francisco Giants denounce these violent acts targeting our AAPI community and we stand with our AAPI community and allies against these injustices and against all forms of anti-Asian racism and violence. The San Francisco Giants are supporting Stop AAPI Hate, the nation’s leading coalition documenting and addressing anti-Asian hate and discrimination. Please visit www.StopAAPIHate.org for resources on how to aid the AAPI community in fighting structural racism and discrimination.
We see you, we stand with you. #StopAsianHate #StopAAPIHate
