How Are The Atlanta Shootings Reverberating Among AAPIs In The Commonwealth?

Asian Community Development Corporation Executive Director Angie Liou joined Danielle Kim from Asian American Commission on Radio Boston WBUR 90.9 FM to share their perspectives on how the most recent surge in violence against Asian immigrants and AAPIs are part of a long history or racist violence and how local organizations are directly supporting communities.⁠
“When you’re talking about a long history of this country’s Chinatowns being displaced and disappearing through gentrification – that is a form of violence…our AAPI and immigrant elders who can’t access vaccines because of language barriers – that is a form of racist violence.”
