Apr 2, 2021

While 2020 will be remembered for the start of the coronavirus pandemic and the world’s racial reckoning after George Floyd’s death, one thing 2021 is sure to be remembered for is the ugly rise in attacks on Asian Americans. William Tong, Connecticut’s first Asian American attorney general, joined All Things Considered to talk about how the Asian American community is processing this nationwide phenomenon. He also talked about the legal powers he’s fighting for to combat anti-Asian crimes.
