#StopTheHate

A Call to Prayer and Action by the Pacific Islander/Asian American Ministries (PAAM) of the United Church of Christ

Angry! Outraged! Upset! There are no words to reflect what is happening in our Asian American and Pacific Islander communities.

Brutal attacks on the elderly and vulnerable are increasing. And these are not robberies. Just hate crimes and in broad daylight. The latest report from just one center monitoring AAPI crimes list over 3,700 incidents from March 2020 to February 2021.

Join the United Church of Christ for an expanded edition of Thursdays for the Soul as leaders and members from the UCC Pacific Islander & Asian American Ministries (PAAM) offer prayers, reflections, and song for collective lament, grieving, a call of national repentance, hope for healing and forgiveness.

This will be followed by a panel presentation and discussion calling for action on how UCC congregations and the wider church can help respond to counter the increasing harassment and violence aimed at our AAPI siblings, sisters, and brothers.
