Our statement regarding the tragedies at Monterey Park & Half Moon Bay

Updated: Feb 7, 2023

We stand with the Asian American community as we extend our deepest condolences to the families and loved ones of the victims of the mass shootings in Monterey Park and Half Moon Bay, California on Lunar New Year. These senseless acts of violence have resulted in immeasurable loss and grief, and our thoughts are with those who have been affected by this tragedy.

Though more details are emerging, we stand in solidarity with the mostly Asian American community of Monterey Park and the farm workers of Half Moon Bay, and applaud the bravery of those who defended the community against the gunman in Monterey Park.

Let us come together as an APIA and broader community to heal, support one another, and work towards changing systems and people to prevent such tragedies in the future.
