Miami, FL - [December 12th] - The call for unity and justice resounds louder than ever in Miami as concerned citizens, community leaders, and allies gear up for a peace rally. On December 16th, from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM, at the iconic Torch of Friendship located at 301 Biscayne Blvd, Miami, FL 33132, individuals will gather in solidarity to oppose unconstitutional legislation and unfair property registration requirements targeting specific members of the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community.

This rally, anticipated to draw substantial attention, will witness the presence of notable Asian American political leaders including House Representative Judy Chu, Texas State Representative Gene Wu, and 2020 Presidential Candidate Andrew Yang. Their participation 

lends significant weight and support to this critical cause, amplifying the urgency and importance of opposing discriminatory laws and standing for justice and equality.

SB 264, a legislation imposing a restrictive property purchase ban for certain community members, has raised significant concerns. Violations of this ban could result in severe civil and criminal penalties, including imprisonment of up to 5 years. Moreover, SB 264 mandates property registration, threatening law-abiding, taxpaying AAPI community members with an unprecedented and unreasonable penalty of $1,000 per day if their properties remain unregistered by December 31st, 2023.

This legislation draws chilling parallels with historical injustices. The requirement to register wealth echoes the horrific experiences of the Nazi regime's treatment of Jews during World War II, leading to discrimination and persecution. Similarly, the targeting of specific community members resonates with the discriminatory Chinese Exclusion Act, a dark period in history that marginalized Asian immigrants.

The rally is an urgent call for unity and justice, aiming to bring together individuals of all backgrounds in opposition to discrimination and unfair treatment. It stands as a testament to the unwavering commitment to justice, diversity, and equality that Miami holds dear.

Join us on December 16th, from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM, at the Torch of Friendship, as we stand united in solidarity. This rally marks a critical moment in the defense of our values, our rights, and our community.
