We Stand With The AAPI Community

The Coro Southern California family denounces the senseless and horrific racism and violence that has been inflicted against Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities and mourns the loss of the victims of the deadly attack in Atlanta.  Our country has seen a dramatic rise in violence and racism directed towards the AAPI community, and the unspeakable tragedy in Atlanta is the latest attack in a horrifying surge in violence, blame, and xenophobia against AAPI communities across the nation during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We at Coro denounce and condemn racist and xenophobic rhetoric that fuels such violence and terror.  Our democracy is strengthened by our diversity and together, we must work to resist racism and ideologies that seek to divide us.  We commit to doing our part to combat the structural bigotry, fear-mongering and terror that is threatening the fabric and safety of our communities and the strength of our democracy.

We condemn hate in all its forms and stand in solidarity with the AAPI community to ensure the rights and dignity of all people are respected and protected, and join our AAPI brothers and sisters to secure safety, resources, and investment for our communities to be safe and to heal.
