Call to Stamp Out Prejudice

Teenage organizers gather in front of the bandstand at Chochenyo Park last Wednesday. These teens organized a candlelight vigil to allow people from all across Alameda to work to stamp out prejudice against the Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) community. Pictured from left to right are Randall Rubio, Vincent and Vinny Camarillo, Kyle Reed, Raquel Williams and Sophia Coffin.

“This is our future, and we are in good hands,” read a post on Facebook that accompanied this photograph. “Join our community to both hear from our AAPI friends and neighbors and also to stand together, united against hate, violence and bigotry,” Councilman John Knox White wrote in his invitation to the vigil.
