From Facing History and Ourselves - Stopping AAPI Hate

  • Sadly, March marks the anniversary of the 2021 shootings in Atlanta that killed eight people, six of whom were women of Asian descent. Such a chilling milestone, alongside news of the brutal March 11 attack on a 67-year old woman in Yonkers, NY, puts a stark spotlight on the terrifying escalation of this racially-motivated violence. From March 19, 2020 to December 31, 2021 there were 10,905 incidents of anti-Asian hate reported to Stop AAPI Hate. The call for each of us to stand up to anti-Asian bigotry and hate is louder than ever before. And it’s educators like you who do so much of the work to model the critical thinking skills, empathy, and civic responsibility that is required for our students to grow into upstanders and changemakers. Two pieces from Facing History, one noting the erasure of API experiences and the other discussing steps to teaching about anti-Asian violence, offer helpful resources as you broach this topic in your classroom.
