QUOTABLES:

“I think it shows that when you say Asian American, you mean a big broad community and I think we all, as individual communities, have to look at this and say, “We’re stronger when we’re together. Let’s work together. Let’s fight this.” I think that’s the way out with the anti-Asian hate.”
