Moments of Humanity

On May 4, a group of community minded volunteers came together at Fountain Valley’s Mile Square Park in honor of the more than 53,000 people in California who had died from COVID-19. In addition, they wanted to shed light on the large increase of reports of hate incidents targeting the Asian & Pacific Islander community over the past year, including the incidents that have gone unreported. The event concluded with the lighting of over 400 luminaries in a call for an end to anti-Asian rhetoric and hate crimes nationwide. It was truly a wonderful way for the community to get together to mourn those who we have lost to the pandemic and stand together to #StopAsianHate.
