Sandra Oh Delivered a Powerful Message During a Stop Asian Hate Rally in Pittsburgh
"I am proud to be Asian," Oh told the crowd.
Sandra Oh is calling for an end anti-Asian racism. On Saturday, the Killing Eve actress joined a Stop Asian Hate Rally in Pittsburgh, Pa, days after the horrific killing of eight people at Atlanta-based spas.
The Grey's Anatomy alum took to the streets in Oakland, Pittsburgh with a megaphone to deliver a powerful message during the rally, saying 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 during a video captured at the rally and 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."
She continued, "I know many of us in our community are very scared and I understand that. 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?"
The masked crowd responded in cheers, clapping, and resounding "Yes"s as Oh asked that they help the Asian community when they are in need.
Oh concluded the powerful message chanting, "I am proud to be Asian. I belong here!"
