I’m calling on @X to protect Californians from Big Oil polluting in their backyards.
Right now, communities across CA breathe in toxic air near our homes, schools & parks. @X, it’s time to prioritize people’s health—not fossil fuel wealth. #SetbacksNow #YesonSB467
THANK YOU FOR TAKING ACTION!
Statement on Violence Against Asian American Pacific Islander Communities
All of us at SF Bay PSR are saddened and appalled by the recent alarming rise in attacks on Asian American and Pacific Islander Communities. We stand in solidarity with Asian Americans Pacific Islanders in San Francisco, Oakland, California, and across the country who have been and are being targeted.
Racism is a public health crisis that must be addressed at all levels of our society in order to heal. In particular, we condemn the racist rhetoric by some media outlets that is fueling the rise in hate crimes against Asian American Pacific Islander communities since the start of the pandemic. SF Bay PSR is dedicated to addressing systemic racism and health inequities by incorporating anti-racism, equity, and justice into all of our work.
Please join us in speaking out, sharing resources, and actively working to stop these horrific attacks on the Asian American Pacific Islander communities.
