DALLAS — After three Korean women were shot and injured in a Koreatown salon in Dallas, the Asian American-Pacific Islander (AAPI) community will hold a solidarity march in Downtown Dallas.
The shooting – which happened earlier this month on Royal Lane – is being investigated as a hate crime. Police said the suspect targeted multiple Asian businesses prior to injuring the three Korean women inside the salon.
With anti-Asian hate incidents on the rise across the country, a local mental health professional told WFAA she couldn't standby without doing something.
I am not just going to let that anger sit and I'm not going to repress that," Dr. Aileen Fullchange, a licensed psychologist, said. "I want to do something about this."
Fullchange hopes allies across racial lines will join in on the march. The AAPI Visibility & Solidarity March will be held at noon on Sunday, starting at the Grassy Knoll.
