Hopkinton Chinese American Associate marched a rally on 3/29/2021 1:30-3:30 pm at Town Common to call awareness to anti-Asian hate crimes and racism.
The event was held in response to this week’s fatal shootings of six Asian-American spa employees in the Atlanta area. That act of violence was the breaking point for many Asian-Americans, who have been plagued by fear due to a rise in hate incidents since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Kevin Gu, a junior at Hopkinton High School, was a speaker at the event. “I actually felt really scared when offering to give a speech at the march,” Gu said. “But I said to myself, you know what, I have to be brave and speak up. The issues that have been transpiring throughout our society recently should not be covered up, and this is finally our community’s time to call out these injustices.”
