Anti-Asian Hate Crime | 5 Things We Can Do

Anti-Asian hate crime has been skyrocketed since the beginning of the pandemic. As an Asian myself, this has been a challenging topic to talk about. For a long time, I turned away from the issue but Asian racism didn’t stop. So I decide to speak up and hope more people can understand the anti-Asian hate crime that has been going on in the US.

In this video, you will learn about the news regarding hate crimes against Asians. Follow with some anti-Asian statistics. And then, I talk about the history and stereotypes of AAPIs (Asian Americans and Pacific islanders). You will learn 5 things that can be helpful for supporting the Asian community.
