Students from the West Contra Costa Unified School District (WCCUSD) have organized a “March in Solidarity with the AAPI Community” Sat. April 3 at 2 p.m. The march will start at El Cerrito High School and then proceed to El Cerrito City Hall.
“We stand in solidarity against the recent and historical anti-Asian hate crimes,” the group stated in a flier posted on the WCCUSD’s Facebook page. “Join us to hear from AAPI youth community members and to demand an end to this racist violence.”
The student march comes amid rising number of hate crime incidents targeting the Asian community in the East Bay, San Francisco and nationwide.
