Press Release - Georgia’s Asian American Leaders Call for Community-Centered Response After Six Asian Women Are Murdered

During this time of crisis for our AAPI community, we call on our local and state government to provide robust and responsive crisis intervention resources, including in-language support for mental health, legal, employment, and immigration services. It is time for Georgia to invest in transformative justice that begins with cross racial dialogue and community-building that address the root causes of violence and hate.

See our full statement here: https://www.advancingjustice-atlanta.org/news/communityresponse

We stand in solidarity with our AAPI brothers and sisters to condemn racist violence in all forms. #StopAsianHate

As of 2021, there is still a national gender wage gap of 18%. That is why women like Sallie Krawcheck are a force to be reckoned with and need to be celebrated! Sallie is the CEO and Co-Founder of Ellevest, a digital financial advisory platform for women. Ellevest was launched in 2016 with a mission of getting more money into the hands of women. And that’s not all;she is also the owner and Chair of Ellevate Network and she was once the president of the Global Wealth & Investment Management division of Bank of America.

We salute you, Sallie, for using your influence to promote #GenderEquality and financially #EmpowerWomen.

03/12/2021

Marsha P. Johnson, a Black transgender womxn, performer, activist and freedom fighter in the LGBTQ+ rights movement, is said to have resisted arrest and thrown the first bottle (or brick or stone) at police during the 1969 Stonewall Riots, which sparked the national LGBTQ+ movement. Throughout her life Johnson was an outspoken advocate for LGBTQ+ rights and homeless street youth who were often ostracized by their families. After Stonewall, Johnson continued her activist work and co-founded the STAR House to meet the needs of gender non-conforming and homeless youth. It was the first LGBTQ+ youth shelter in the U.S. and the first organization led by trans women of color. May we know her and celebrate her fight for equality and justice for all. #EmpoweredWomenChangeTheWorld #WomensHerstoryMonth #WHM
