Dr. Hua Wang, CAAL President Interviewed for the #StopAsianHate Rally & Run at Boston Common

Dr. Hua Wang, CAAL President and Co-chair of NECAA, was interviewed by Boston Globe, WBZ 4, WCVB 5, WHDH 7, NBC10 Boston, WFXT 25, NECN, GBH News at the iconic Boston Common – the last stop of the #StopAsianHate Rally & Run. Please see below for some of the media quotes and links:

Hua Wang, chair of the New England Chinese American Alliance, told GBH News the event was organized as a metaphor for the prolonged effort needed to wipe out racism. “This is not going to be a once-and-done event, it’s a marathon,” he said, “so that’s why we choose the theme about covering all 8 cities and towns along the route. It’s a marathon – it’s very important for us to turn this moment into momentum.” – GBH News

This is actually a crisis moment for Asian Americans. But out of crisis comes opportunity,” said Hua Wang, co-chair of the New England Chinese American Alliance. “It’s also an opportunity for us to speak up and condemn xenophobia, hatred, bigotry and violence against Asian Americans.” “We will not be silent,” said Wang. “And we need to turn this moment into momentum.” – WBZ 4 TV

莱镇华协CAAL在行动:团结一致发声 停止仇恨亚裔 #StopAsianHate

这些年无论是怀着对美国价值观的憧憬与热爱来到美国的新移民,还是已经在美生活了一代乃至数代人的本土公民,两千三百万亚裔遭遇了太多的不公,承受了许多原本与他们无关的敌意与罪名。一个少数民族不应该被无下限侵犯,不应该因为肤色和种族受到社会的挤压,不应该因为政治和国际关系成为替罪羊!

枪声带来悲痛,也带来警醒。全美亚裔都应该团结起来,为了我们的亲人,孩子,朋友,社区,走上街头,呐喊、抗争,争取作为公民的平等权利!

月刊 莱镇华协(CAAL) 2021 年 02 月

当你还在感叹时光飞逝的时候,貌似2021才刚开年,二月却已丢下满地的残雪,悄悄关上了大门。

回首二月,它辍满雪花,美丽冻人,却也丰富多姿。二月是欢庆的,洋溢着牛年来临时的红红火火,热热闹闹;二月是甜蜜的,情人节里摇曳着浪漫的烛光和芬香的玫瑰;还有传统的中国元宵节,团团圆圆的汤团里含着情人般的甜甜美美;二月是一份纪念, 一份反思,它是一年一度的Black History Month; 二月更是一个结束,一个开篇,庚子过,否极泰来!当新增COVID 病例在全球直线下降时,我们仿佛从黑暗的隧道中看到了曙光在向我们招手!

大洋彼岸南国的家乡已是二月春风似剪刀的景象,尽管没有花开的莱镇严寒依旧,但春天的脚步越来越近,温暖还会遥远吗?
