. ‘Stand Up, Fight Back’: Atlanta rally decries anti-Asian violence, mourns spa shooting victims « JO LEE MAGAZINE

USA TODAY/As people nationwide rallied in support of the nation’s Asian American community following Tuesday’s killings in Georgia, hundreds gathered Saturday afternoon in downtown Atlanta for a rally and march to honor the victims and decry anti-Asian violence.

It took an elderly man in San Francisco to die to get attention. It took six Asian women to die in Atlanta to get people to care.”
