#StopAsianHate StanfordMed LIVE Special Town Hall

Thank you for joining us for the special #StopAsianHate StanfordMed LIVE Town Hall on March 26 to raise awareness of anti-Asian hate and violence in our country and to put the recent Atlanta shootings into perspective.  

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Asians, Asian Americans, and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) have reported increased experiences of discrimination, hate, and violence. This includes verbal harassment, unprovoked assaults, and being socially ostracized and antagonized. On March 16, a gunman targeted three spas and massage parlors in Atlanta, Georgia, killing eight people, including six women of Asian descent. These acts of racism are directly linked to a long history of racializing Asians as “others” whose culture is unassimilable to the United States. 

The recording of this special town hall is now available. Watch the recording now
