Members of the Asian and Pacific Islander community have been living in fear and uncertainty as Anti-Asian rhetoric and hate crimes have escalated across the U.S., particularly over the last year. It has taken far too long for all of us to hear their voices and stand in solidarity with their community. The horrific shootings in North Georgia that resulted in eight lives lost is the latest in a long series of senseless violence toward Asian and Pacific Islanders and it must stop.
We all deserve to live without fear of prejudice, discrimination or violence - and we must stand up and support those who live in fear for their safety. As I've said previously, PayPal stands with our AAPI employees and the AAPI community, and we will continue to fight for justice and equality for all.
