Rejecting Bigotry at Every Intersection
Posted on: March 19, 2021
Asian Americans are today and have been for centuries integral to social, cultural, and economic life in the United States.
The murders of eight people—six of them Asian American women—in Georgia this week are a disgusting and devastating display of the white supremacist patriarchal culture still pervasive in our country. No matter how you look at it, a crime of this magnitude reveals deep-seated hatred, bred of a long history of racism against Asian Americans and persistent efforts to dominate and diminish women, particularly women of color.
Achieving racial and gender justice requires us all to stand together and reject bigotry at every intersection. The Rockefeller Brothers Fund is committed to becoming an anti-racist and anti-sexist institution. We stand in solidarity with our Asian American colleagues, partners, and neighbors in the struggle against racism and misogyny.
