There are no words to describe the sorrow of hearing of, yet another heinous act of violence perpetrated against members of the Asian diaspora. One need only look through American history to see the roots and identify patterns that have allowed such violence to permeate. This is a defining moment through which we as a community can exemplify a true ethic of care and stand in solidarity against anti-Asian hate, discrimination, and bias through demonstrated action. Solidary can take many forms and requires a commitment to shifting our comfort zones into learning zones and elevating consciousness. The truest commitment to deepening solidarity is action. "You cannot change any society unless you take responsibility for it, unless you see yourself as belonging to it and responsible for changing it” (Grace Lee Boggs).
