Inland Equity Partnership grieves for the families and communities of numerous Asian community members murdered in Georgia on March 16, 2021 by senseless gun violence and anti-Asian racism. We hope those wounded survive these atrocious attacks and we continue to condemn all forms of hate.

The Inland Equity Partnership sees these killings as hate crime and domestic terrorism. We are calling on our elected officials to declare it as such and to publicly issue statements to condemn these racist crimes. 

Inland Equity Partnership’s member organizations include Asian Pacific Islander  community groups. Our Asian brothers and sisters have been part of our communities for longer than the State of California has been a state. These racist attacks are a tragic assault on all of our communities and we must take a stand against them. We call on Inland Empire communities and elected officials to stand united against all forms of hate and violence towards marginalized communities.
