Dear MOCA Friends,

We are shocked and anguished by the murders of six women of Asian descent and two other victims at their places of work and respite on Tuesday night 3/16/2021 in Atlanta. Our condolences go out to the families of all the victims.

This is a frightening escalation of the racial violence targeting Asian American Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) across the country since the pandemic began. Attacks have occurred on the streets in broad daylight, just outside victims’ homes, and at their jobs—terrifying incidents that recall previous eras of anti-Asian bigotry. (Please watch and share the PSA video below created by MOCA charting the historical roots of anti-Asian racism in America from 1882 to now).

MOCA condemns the racially motivated killings of 3/16/2021 and all forms of bigotry.

At this heartbreaking moment in our country’s history, MOCA as a social history museum remains committed to documenting immigrant stories, raising awareness about the long history of anti-Asian racism, and offering spaces for discussion and reflection.

We stand with our elected leaders, sister organizations, and fellow community members across the country to combat the rising tide of racial discrimination and violence against the Asian American Pacific Islander community.

Yours,

The MOCA Team
