March 29, 2021
New York, NY… On Tuesday evening, New York City Mayoral Candidate Sara Tirschwell met with members of the Asian-American community to announce free security protection in Sunset Park’s Chinatown neighborhood in Brooklyn. From City Council Candidate Yu Lin's campaign headquarters, Tirschwell met with Frances Wong, Director of the Asian Health Institute of New York Methodist Hospital, Scott Soifer of Quality Protection Patrol Services, Ray Chen of Bay Shine Real Estate Corp., and Raymond Wang, CEO of Rintercom and President of Tai Shan Du Hu Association. Those in attendance discussed the ongoing need for allies and support during this time of heightened concern within the Asian American community.
"The fact that within hours of hearing of the devastating hate crime targeting members of the Asian community in several Atlanta massage spas, Sara put a plan in action to protect the members of her own community who also feel threatened and targeted shows just how committed Sara is to providing a safe and welcoming environment for all New Yorkers. Sara doesn't just discuss ideas to protect her fellow hard-working New Yorkers, she implements them." - Ian Prior, Sara For Mayor campaign spokesman said.
