Former Governor Gary Locke also gave a history of the struggle of Asian American and pledged that "Asian is not virus, but hate is". He won laud applause from everyone onsite.
The group walked around the park and held a candle light vigil for the victims of the Atlanta shooting. It was a rainy day. Many parents brought their kids. They showed solidarity despite the cold and wet conditions. We thank all of them for speaking out for minorities and raising the awareness of hate crime in this land of American.
