At Marin Humane, we stand against cruelty toward all living beings and promote empathy and kindness as a path to a more humane community. We acknowledge the trauma, pain, and fear Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) are feeling so acutely in the wake of the increase in violence against their communities. It’s a stark reminder that racism permeates all aspects of our society and there is much work to be done.

Inflammatory rhetoric, acts of discrimination, and racism towards AAPIs is not new. Racism can take many forms and recent incidents against AAPIs show how statements and actions can escalate into violence.

We are continuing to learn about the experiences of AAPI and the issues that AAPI communities face as a part of our commitment to enacting positive change. We encourage all who value compassion and stand against violence to learn more.

Marin Humane stands with AAPI and BIPOC communities against racism.
