Grieve for them. Prioritize their stories. Learn how to say their names. Give what you can to their families. #StopAsianHate

I’m no political pundit but I grew up w a dad who was a federal prosecutor & he taught me a lot & I’ve also sat a fair amount of poker w serious players & l’ll say this: I do not think Trump is trying to ‘make his base happy’ or ‘laying the groundwork for his own network’...
Dear @realDonaldTrump: Hate crimes surged against Asian Americans this year. You added fuel to the fire by making racist statements like Kung Flu. The Asian American community turned out in force in multiple swing states, including Georgia. Because racism has consequences. https://t.co/HVQDBKyV1P
Today, the Supreme Court heard arguments in a case that could strike down the Affordable Care Act. Getting rid of the ACA will take us backward to a time when you could charge a woman more for her health care—just because she’s a woman.
To young Asian Americans: our work & solidarity with our Black & Brown siblings will only get stronger from here. There’s nothing we can’t do when we fight like hell for the things we need.
It’s a new day. The movement will win and we've got work to do ✊🏽
📝Thread: We’ve had time to breath easy and celebrate this moment, knowing that decency won & good prevailed.
AAPI turnout this election broke records. From an unprecedented showing in battleground states to AAPI candidates up & down the ballot, we showed up everywhere.
