Standing with AAPI
Yolo County Library condemns the recent and ongoing attacks against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI). Discrimination against the AAPI community is neither new nor isolated, with deep roots in systemic racism and oppression. Yes disinformation and xenophobic rhetoric about COVID-19 has spurred an increase in racist assaults. Yolo County Library stands in solidarity with our Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander community members, and we remain committed to our goal of resisting hate while fostering equity and justice for all members of society.
“It is not enough to be quietly non-racist, now is the time to be vocally anti-racist.” – Angela Y. Davis
