New Economy Project stands in solidarity with Asian American and Pacific Islander communities, and condemns violence and racism directed at AAPI and all BIPOC communities. We mourn the deaths of the eight people murdered last week in Atlanta: Daoyou Feng, Hyug Jung Grant, Suncha Kim, Paul Andre Michaels, Soon Chung Park, Xiaojie Tan, Delania Ashley Yaun, and Yong Ae Yue.
The rise in attacks against Asian Americans is the direct result of white supremacy, built into our country’s history and institutions. New Economy Project is committed to working with grassroots groups to build a just and equitable future for all. Central to this work is dismantling racial capitalism, including systems and policies that extract wealth and power from BIPOC communities. We know another world is necessary and that we all need to fight.
