A Global Movement to Stop Asian Hate, AmericanLeaderZ and CoalitionZ Lead the Way in Guiding Change Through #10Demands
Martin Luther King Jr famously spoke: “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” Truer words have never been spoken, and the country finds itself amid a slew of injustices from every corner of the nation. Hate is a virus; so why is it not treated as such? Everyone has seen the headlines, read the stories, and placed support imagery on their Instagram stories; but being aware of a problem and stopping the spread of a virus are two very different things. While the world battles the COVID-19 pandemic, society faces a secondary pandemic in racial injustice and Asian hate.
To champion meaningful change, AmericanLeaderZ and CoalitionZ are proud to announce the Stop Asian Hate March for Freedom and Justice to elevate minority voices, combat hate, and call on both public and private organizations to use AmericanLeaderZ’s 10 Demands as the framework for systemic change. The rally and march will commence at noon on Friday, April 9, and Saturday, April 10 following a route from NY City Hall to Union Square to United Nations on Friday, and NY City Hall to Union Square and Times Square on Saturday.
AmericanLeaderZ, led by Fernando Lorenzo is a global movement that began after the murder of George Floyd, banding people of all ages, races, communities, and beliefs together to fight for the same purpose: equality. As violence against minority groups has continued across the United States over the past year, AmericanLeaderZ has brought forth 10 demands for both public and private organizations to take to stop systemic racism, commit to equality, and shatter barriers facing minorities every day. The #10Demands are as follows:
1. End Systemic Racism, Boost Racial Equality
2. End the War on Drugs and Decriminalize Possession of All Drugs
3. End Private Prisons and Reform the Prison-Industrial Complex
4. Reform the Education System
5. More Permanent Work From Home Options
6. Invest More in Asian Americans and Minority Communities
7. More Social and Financial Support
8. Popularize 32 Hour, 4 Day Work Weeks
9. Support Universal Healthcare
10. Begin a New Era for the Arts, Entrepreneurialism, Humanity, Love, and Multi-Planetary Space Exploration
The Stop Asian Hate March for Freedom and Justice is in response to the violence against Asian communities in the United States. To #StopAsianHate, AmericanLeaderZ is calling on New Yorkers of every walk of life to march hand in hand, calling on the adherence to these #10Demands to provide the basis for a more equitable and fair global system.
“As an Asian American who has experienced many systemic injustices throughout my life, I want to follow in the footsteps of great leaders like Martin Luther King Jr, Greta Thunberg, Elon Musk, and Bernie Sanders – to lead and provide a more equitable and fair society by calling for systemic reform against the injustices and bias that continues to greatly plague and divide our society. I am fighting for a better future.” — Fernando Lorenzo, Founder of AmericanLeaderZ
