May is Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month, a celebration of the contributions and the heritage of Asians and Pacific Islanders in the United States.
At the Lived Theology in Asian America Conference on race, justice and politics held last week, Dr. Melissa Borja of the University of Michigan shared what she and her research team learned as they tracked stories in the media about anti-Asian racism and resistance to it over the past year.
Over the past year about 3,800 hate attacks were recorded against Asian Americans. According to research by the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino, attacks increased by 150% in 2020.
