Hola mi gente,
LatinoLEAD expresses its heartfelt condolences to the families and loved ones of the people who tragically lost their lives yesterday in Georgia. We also mourn for our Asian siblings who are enduring senseless hate across this country.
We consider yesterday’s incident a hate crime. We condemn this act of violence, white supremacy and racism. LatinoLEAD stands in solidarity with the Asian community and will continue to lock arms with the MN Coalition of Asian Americans in offering support during this time of pain and tragedy. In solidarity, Irma Márquez Trapero (she/her/ella)
