On March 20, a pan Asian coalition of organizations led a rally “From the Bay to Atlanta: A Safe Space for Asian Americans to Grieve and Rage” at Portsmouth Square to mourn the 8 people murdered in the mass shooting of two Asian massage parlors in Georgia, 6 of whom were Asian women, and the wave of attacks on the Asian American community. The violence stems from a history of anti-Asian racism and misogyny towards Asian womxn.

Organized by Vida Kuang and Carmen Chen, the exhibition showcases love letters by attendees of the rally, written from a place of solidarity, love, and power to the Asian American community. In addition, it features the documentary “Share the Square” by James Q. Chan, and photography from Joyce Xi.

This project is an extension of ongoing efforts around community safety that centers the voices and power of immigrants, working-class people, women, elders, LGBTQ, poor people, and youth of the Asian American diaspora.
