5/2 Rally Recap

Updated: May 20, 2021

On Sunday, May 2nd, we held our first ever march + rally in downtown PA, California, with over 350 people in attendance!

A huge thank you to everyone who attended 8by8's first #StopAsianHate rally in downtown Palo Alto last Sunday (May 2nd) - your energy and activism helped make the event a great success! We've prepared a short summary of the rally below so that you can see the impact you created.

  • Hundreds from across the Bay Area attended our rally, joining us in a march through Palo Alto to City Hall

  • We heard from guest speakers like State Treasurer Fiona Ma, Co-Founder of Old Navy Jenny Ming, and Survivor winner and Google executive Yul Kwon

  • 1000 We Belong yellow whistles were given out to participants, along with other #StopAsianHate items from our partner organizations

  • With the help of local restaurants like Hobee's, Kirk's Steakburgers, and Asianbox, we were able to provide hundreds of free meals + items for our attendees

  • We launched the #8by8 challenge, encouraging attendees to register 8 people to vote in 8 days

If you have a few moments, we'd really appreciate it if you could complete this short survey to tell us more about your rally experience:

Thank you again for your support for voter registration, and your dedication to help us #StopAsianHate. We couldn't have done this event without you, and we look forward to seeing you in the future!
