As the United States continues to struggle to combat the global pandemic of COVID, reports of anti-Asian harassment and discrimination have soared in the United States. In recent months accelerated targeted attacks and agitations towards Asian-Americans have been alarming and quite disheartening. These mistreatments have not only led to racism but also xenophobia. As we work to create a more just society, it is critically important for us to educate ourselves and our communities about injustices everywhere and stand together to build safe, welcoming communities we all deserve.
