Park District Stands with Asian Community
On Tuesday, April 6, 2021, the East Bay Regional Park District Board of Directors unanimously approved a resolution denouncing racism, xenophobia, and violence against Asians, Asian Americans, and Pacific Islanders.
Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, harmful and xenophobic rhetoric related to the geographic origins of the disease resulted in a rise in reported hate incidents and violent crimes against the AAPI community.
It is critical for businesses, community groups, and government agencies to speak out and stand in solidarity with the AAPI community members who are concerned for their safety and well-being.
