Standing in Solidarity with Our Asian Siblings: Alex Wong

Standing in Solidarity with Our Asian Siblings: Alex Wong

Only a day after the horrific shootings in greater Atlanta, we begin our series on anti-Asian racism. When a gunman violently assaulted and killed eight humans, six of whom were Asian women, in a matter of an hour, wounding countless others, we must look critically at the interlocking realities of sexism, misogyny, harmful sexual stereotypes, and supremacy cultures. These realities continue to accelerate manifold harm against communities of color resulting in not only material consequences but also the devastating loss of jobs, housing, livelihoods, the literal lives of our loved ones, and the spaces and places that should be safe for each of us.

Alex Wong is a Latin GRAMMY-nominated artist/producer who makes music to help people remember who they are and show themselves to the world. He has produced records with Delta Rae (Big Machine), Ari Hest (Columbia), Vienna Teng (Universal), and Morgxn (Hollywood), among others. His music has been featured in movies The Last Song and The Lincoln Lawyer, TV shows True Blood, Ray Donovan, and One Tree Hill, and commercials for Google and Aquafina. Alex has performed at festivals like Coachella and Outside Lands, and NPR’s Mountain Stage. He was a songwriting finalist in the NewSong competition and Kerrville Newfolk competition. In 2020 he released an EP Kivalina inspired by stories of climate change, and his second solo album The Elephant and the Seahorse on Tone Tree records. In 2021 Alex created The Quiet Voice Fund around the belief that our voice does not need to be loud to be strong. The fund supports organizations working to redefine power in our culture toward authenticity, empathy and actualization and away from aggression, selfishness and domination.
