We at the Immigrant History Initiative are heartbroken by the surge of anti-Asian attacks in the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak. This graphic explains the most troubling aspects of these attacks.
Attacks against Asian Americans reveal a complete lack of awareness for Asian American history and identity, and the integral role Asian Americans have played in the making of America. In light of the resurgence of xenophobia, hatred, and racism, we will be posting weekly mini-lessons to this page to educate the public about Asian American history and our community's deep roots in this country.
Our first video will be posted TOMORROW, Tuesday (4/7) at 5 PM! Please share our weekly mini-lessons to your own communities to combat the anti-Asian sentiment. Other lesson plans are also available for download on our website at immigranthistory.org/curriculum.
Stay tuned, stay informed, and stay healthy!
