Add Your Voice
April 22, 2021
This month, Phoenix Center for the Arts and Thunderbird Arts Center added their voice in support of inclusivity and protection to two letters, drafted for our Arizona government officials, by the Asian Corporate & Entrepreneur Leaders (ACEL) and ONE Community (ONE).
In each letter, along with over 100 Arizona businesses, we stand in solidarity with our local Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) and LGBTQ+ communities, in these requests for equal protections and opportunities under Arizona law. Phoenix Center for the Arts and Thunderbird Arts Center encourage the community to join together to stop hate, and put an end to inequality.
Read the letter from the ACEL, requesting “to make the prevention and prosecution of hate crimes against AAPI a top priority in your governmental agenda.”
Read the letter from ONE, writing “in support of non-discrimination ordinances that protect all people, including LGBTQ people, from discrimination in employment, housing and public accommodations.”
For resources on how you can add your voice in support of equal rights and protections under the law:
· ACEL recommends visiting stopaapihate.org for resources on how you can contribute to the movement to stop anti-Asian hate.
· ONE invites you to take the Unity Pledge at openaz.co to show your commitment to improving the future of Arizona.
