Statement of Support for the Asian Community from City Council President Sabina Matos:
The violence yesterday in Georgia, where eight individuals were killed, six of whom were of Asian descent, is heartbreaking. Yet, it is a continuation of the series of attacks on Asian communities across the country since the Pandemic began.
Today, I stand with our Asian communities and pledge my support to help fight back against these ugly and vile acts of hatred.
If we are to move forward and get through this Pandemic, we must support all members of our communities and call out hate and discrimination in all forms.
Sabina Matos, President
Providence City Council
Councilwoman – Ward 15
