The Tucson Chinese Baptist Church is responding to an increase in attacks against Asian Americans

TUCSON, Arizona (KGUN) – Tucson Chinese Baptist Church shares a message of unity following attacks on Asian Americans in the United States.

“Asian-American communities are connected around the world, and many of my parishioners hurt with those who hurt with those in other places,” said Pastor Jason Ingle.

Ingle said that members of his Tucson community don’t often experience Asian discrimination, but it does happen.

“Sometimes it’s as easy as asking people where you’re really from,” said Ingle. “The weight behind it seems to indicate that you are not from here.”

Ingle wants people to come together.

“The hope I have for ourselves is that we will go beyond skin color and move the country of origin and look forward to how we can live together,” said Ingle.
