During the COVID-19 pandemic, violent attacks against and harassment toward Asian Americans have spiked. Hate crimes against Asian Americans in 16 cities rose by a staggering 150% in 2020. These incidents range from violent attacks and verbal abuse to the vandalization of Asian-owned businesses. Although some attribute this spike to statements by former President Trump blaming China for COVID-19, anti-Asian racism has deep roots in American history. Join this interactive event to learn about this complex issue, and how current challenges and threats can be understood in the broader context of systemic racism in America.
