As American Baptists, we are concerned about the impact of COVID-19 on Asians and Asian Americans. The fear and uncertainty caused by the pandemic has led many persons in the U.S. to scapegoat, resulting in Asians and Asian Americans becoming victims of prejudice, discrimination and, at times, violence.
The Alliance recently issued a Statement of Concern regarding COVID-19 and the Anti-Asian Racism and supports the Statement of the Asian American Christian Collaborative. This latter website contains many helpful resources as well.
Efforts to raise awareness to the current issues and to move our denomination forward in racial equity and justice are continuing.
