After the recent surge in hate crimes against the Asian community, Orange County residents gathered in solidarity outside of Fullerton City Hall on Saturday.
Assemblywoman Sharon Quirk-Silva led a press conference alongside other elected officials and Asian and Pacific Islander advocates.
With nearly 100 people gathered outside of city hall to watch the press conference, Quirk-Silva began the meeting by declaring solidarity with the Asian community with one simple message, “We’re gathering to stand up together to stop Asian hate.”
“One of the things we know for sure is enough is enough,” Quirk-Silva said. “We are tired of the attacks on our Asian American communities, we are tired of attacks on our Latino and Black communities, and we are simply tired of hate.”
