Since the pandemic began, over 3,800 hate crimes against Asian immigrants and Asian Americans— women in the majority—have besieged the Asian American community. The Atlanta massacre that included six Asian women, the Indianapolis shooting that included four Sikh community members, and random acts of violence in every major city, have enraged the community, prompting a demand for collective responses addressing the intersections of racism, misogyny, and xenophobia. Inadequate contention in our society with white supremacy, nativism, and the illness of “other”-ing and scapegoating, promoted by Trump and others, hinders progress toward justice. The experts on this panel will explore Asian American histories of racial violence and invisibility, resistance and activism, contemporary and ongoing efforts to challenge these attacks and how to build effective solidarity.
