Just announced for next Saturday: The Stop Asian Hate Solidarity Ride, supported by the fledgling group, BikePOCPNW. Below is the description they’ve shared on Instagram:
The murders in Atlanta have disturbingly shown a light on anti-Asian sentiments, xenophobia, misogyny, & fetisization of Asian women. We need to tear this hate down.
Shred the “model minority myth” & ride alongside the Asian community as we create intentional space in solidarity.
Who can attend: This ride is meant for communities of color, centering Asian cyclists. White folks/accomplices are supporting us by offering corking/security. (Note: Corking is a tactic to block traffic at intersections to allow the cycling group to get through all together.)
For our non-POC supporters: You can donate funds to the Oregon Chinese Coalition, Chinese American Citizens Alliance in tandem with Clay Street Table who run an Asian Pantry in Portland that purchases, delivers & distributes culturally-specific groceries to our Chinese, Korean & Vietnamese elders & families.
