Last week in Atlanta, a gunman took the lives of eight people, including six women of Asian descent.  After close to 3,800 reports of hate incidents targeting Asian Americans during the past year, last week’s shootings add to the pain they have experienced. This Saturday at 10:00 a.m., join local residents, officials, and more importantly, our friends and neighbors as we walk together up South Finley Avenue and hold a vigil in memory of the lives lost.   The Bernards Township Democratic Committee would like to stand with our AAPI friends and neighbors by asking for donations to Womankind, an NYC-based organization that works with survivors of gender-based violence. Their  courageous and inspirational staff speaks 18+ Asian languages and dialects. #StopAAPIHate  #supportwomen
