Stop Asian Hate

Statement April 2021

 

Women in Voice stands in solidarity with the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community. We join in the call to end the increasingly violent, ongoing, and deadly attacks against people of Asian descent.Racism against people of Asian descent is not new, it is a part of the history and lived experiences of many members of the Asian community. The lack of acknowledgment and affirmation that this is an ongoing battle for many is harmful to all. 

We have all been forever changed by the impact of the Coronavirus (COVID -19). In our isolation, we have realized our indisputable connectivity. And acknowledge the collective trauma, uncertainty, and fear being experienced worldwide. We cannot, in good conscience, stay silent about this issue. 

Women in Voice is an international organization grounded in the principle of amplifying minority groups in voice technology. Voice technology does not exist in a vacuum, it is a product of society. A societal problem that is not addressed will remain a problem for generations to come. Racism in all its forms must be denounced.

The time for change is now.
