3/13/21 SAN JOSE ” Recounting the harassment, discrimination and racism Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders have endured for decades in the Bay Area, elected officials, community leaders and residents rallied in front of San Jose City Hall on Saturday to decry a wave of hate crimes that have rocked the region in recent months.
“Now is the time for non-Asian allies to stand up in solidarity with our Asian and Pacific Islander neighbors” San Jose Councilmember Pam Foley, who organized the rally along with Low, told the crowd of about 200 people. “It is our responsibility to make it absolutely clear that hate has no place in our community, that racism and bigotry will not be tolerated in San Jose.”
