Stop Asian Hate: Perspectives from Columbia, SC

Words cannot capture what I felt hearing about the violence against my fellow Asian Americans in Atlanta. For so long the discrimination and racism experienced by Asian Americans has been invisible. In an ever changing racial landscape of the American South, we cannot stop at just embracing diversity, we must protect it. 

In South Carolina particularly, we must do better in recognizing the lived experiences of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI), by not reducing our diverse racial/ethnic group to “other.” This is why now, more than ever, Asian Americans need to be at the table. Did you know that AAPI are the least represented in public office?   I am pleased to announce a special panel with my fellow AAPI in Columbia, SC, focusing on their lived experiences and perspectives on building a more inclusive community.
