What: CASTP to held legal seminar and panel discussion chaired by CASTP board member Sunny Yang, on the recent hate crime issue against Asian and Asian American, as well as practical approaches about how to prevent it and how to report them.

Why: There were nearly 3,800 hate incidents in the past year in the United States in which Asian-Americans have been targeted, with one of the latest being on March 16th, where eight people were killed in Atlanta, and among the victims, six were women of Asian descent. The United State is a country rich in diversity, but throughout the American history, Anti-Asian actions and racism are not new. While they have been existing for centuries, they are especially dangerous during the most stressful period in history. Hate leads to violence and tragedy. We must stand up and act to hate crimes, improve our commitment to diversity, and defend our rights.

As President Joe Biden said, “It’s wrong. It’s un-American. And it must stop.”
