Sandra Oh is speaking out against all of the hate and violence towards the Asian community.
The 49-year-old Killing Eve actress attended a Stop Asian Hate rally in Pittsburgh, Penn. on Saturday (March 20) just days after eight people were killed in the deadly spree shooting at three Atlanta-area spas.
During the rally, Sandra took to the street to deliver a powerful speech, saying that she is “proud to be Asian.”
“Pittsburgh, I am so happy and proud to be here with you, and thank you to all the organizers for organizing this just to give us an opportunity to be together and to stand together and to feel each other,” Sandra said in a video shared by CBS Pittsburgh. “For many of us in our community, this is the first time we are even able to voice our fear and our anger, and I really am so grateful to everyone willing to listen.”
“I know many of us in our community are very scared and I understand that,” Sandra continued. “And one way to get through our fear is to reach out to our communities. I will challenge everyone here, if you see something will you help me?”
While receiving cheers from the crowd, Sandra went on to lead everyone to start chanting, “I am proud to be Asian!”
Sandra‘s participation in the rally comes a few days after fellow Asian actor Daniel Dae Kim appeared at a Congressional hearing where called out lawmakers who had voted against a resolution that condemned anti-Asian violence.
