As hate incidents targeting Asians rose by over 200% in the San Francisco East Bay community of San Leandro, local activists and leaders came together to show solidarity with the Asian community on May 16, 2021. California's new attorney general Rob Bonta was in attendance, along with a number of other local leaders and community organizations from around the Bay Area. All were there to denounce the violence and stand together united against hate.
"Everybody can do something and nobody should do nothing," said Bonta. "This is a moment when everybody should hear the call to action — and act. Step in in any way that you can."
