OPEIU stands with the AAPI community against the violence and discrimination they've been subjected to for centuries on U.S. soil, which has skyrocketed more than 150 percent since the start of the pandemic. No one should fear racist violence in or out of the workplace. It's incumbent on the entire labor movement, including OPEIU, to educate, agitate and organize internally and externally against the myriad ways racism has seeped into our society and our workplaces.
