The rise of anti-AAPI violence across the nation has been harrowing — and its impact on women and the LGBTQ+ community outsized. Join U.S. Sen. Mazie Hirono of Hawaii, U.S. Congresswoman Grace Meng of Queens, New York and author and anti-racist consultant Kim Tran to learn the history behind harassment targeting Asian Americans and discuss community-level and policy solutions for curtailing it. This conversation will be moderated by 19th general assignment reporter Mariel Padilla and feature a special performance of “Gold” by Ella Jay Basco and Ruby Ibarra.
