While violence toward Asian Americans has always existed in the United States, the community has faced racist violence and hate crimes at a much higher rate over the last year. Between March 2020 and February 2021, Stop AAPI Hate reported 3,795 hate incidents nationwide. Experts argue this phenomenon has been fueled by Sinophobia, anti-China foreign policy, and xenophobic political rhetoric unleashed during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Join the National Committee on US-China Relations on April 12 at 8:00 p.m. EDT for a virtual two-part program with Jessica J. Lee and Ian Shin as they discuss the impact of anti-China political rhetoric on the current domestic U.S. climate, and Congresswoman Judy Chu as she addresses anti-Asian racism through legislative change.
