Reflections on March 16 – Elisabeth Sophie Lee

Grateful to my friend Elisabeth Sophie Lee for this important post. Here are a couple quotes:

“It is heartbreaking to know that people have to be murdered in order for attention to be brought on anti-Asian racism.”

and

“To my non-AAPI friends: I ask that you educate yourselves by listening to our stories and donating and supporting our businesses, publications and organizations. Share resources on your platforms no matter how small or large your audience is. Call out racist remarks and microaggressions because when you fail to stand up, it is only further normalized. Check up on your Asian American friends — ask us what you can do, how we are feeling, but also give us space if we need it. It is one thing to see your outward support on social media, but it is another to really feel it through a text, a call or a meeting”

Read and heed her whole reflection:
