To our community,
Over the past year, Anti-Asian violence and hate-crimes have increased by 150% in the United States. This violence deserves no space in our country, and we at LNPWI condemn the acts of violence being perpetrated against the Asian American and Asian immigrant community.
We work to serve all parts of North Philadelphia, and Asian Americans and immigrants are a vital part of our community. We acknowledge the genuine pain and loss this destructive hate has caused, and now more than ever, it is our collective responsibility to rally around our neighbors and stand up for their safety. We stand in solidarity with all of our Asian and Asian American participants, staff, faculty, students, and neighbors and will continue to amplify their stories and voices during this time.
The LNPWI Team
