The rising number of hate crimes towards Asian Americans in the US is disturbing. We at Elevated Thought are angered by the anti-Asian rhetoric and violence that has amplified since the COVID-19 pandemic began. We stand in solidarity with the Asian community.
We are in a global community of struggle against white supremacy. We must commit ourselves to take care of one another and hold each other accountable. It should not take violence to unite us at a national level. We are deeply disturbed and saddened by the rise of anti-Asian racism and rhetoric. It’s important for us to come together and amplify the experiences of Asian Americans and the Asian diaspora.
Here are some accounts that have furthered our knowledge and are amplifying resources for Asian Americans:

Please share and drop in the comments any Asian American organizations, organizers, and resources that are working towards social justice! We do not and will not tolerate or engage with xenophobic, anti-Asian, and pro-police ideals.
