San Diego API Community Support Letter Sign-On
Dear Community Leaders, Advocates, and Friends,

As the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact communities on a global scale, a coalition of Asian and Pacific Islander (API) organizations in San Diego are asking for organizational support and sign-on to denounce the xenophobia, racism, and increasing acts of violence targeted towards Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander communities both locally and nationally.

United, we call upon our greater community at large to avoid the use of harmful language including labels such as “China coronavirus”, “Chinese coronavirus”, and “Wuhan Virus,” when defining a global pandemic afflicting humanity as a whole. Use of such language has led to an alarming increase in consequences ranging from unintended microaggressions to acts of violence and hate towards Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders - further encouraging xenophobia, racism, and dividing us all.

Additionally, the coalition calls for the San Diego community to be vigilant against acts of hate and to come together in calling out incidents directed not only towards Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders - but also those inflicted upon Black, Latinx, Indigenous, Muslim, and LGBTQIA communities, as well as people with disabilities, each and every day. We urge our community to work with us to combat xenophobia and misinformation.

If your organization would like to offer your support, please sign-on here: bit.ly/signapisupportletter. We encourage you to forward to other allies/coalitions as well.

Sincerely,

San Diego API Coalition
