6/10/22 - Endless Tide: The Continuing Struggle to Overcome Anti-Asian Hate in New York
In February 2021, the Asian American Bar Association of New York (AABANY) published their report, "A Rising Tide of Hate and Violence against Asian Americans in New York during COVID-19: Impact, Causes, Solutions" to address the rise in hate and violence directed toward the Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) community since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States. Shortly after the report's release, a series of high-profile violent attacks, including the March 2021 spa shootings in Atlanta and brutal attacks in New York City and nationwide, brought renewed attention to the problem of anti-Asian hate and violence. Despite cause for optimism, attacks against AAPI persons have continued and anti-Asian hate has not abated.

A year after "A Rising Tide," the New York AAPI community remains under attack, with no foreseeable relief or end in sight. The recent deaths of three Asian women, Michelle Go, Christina Yuna Lee, and GuiYing Ma, in the first two months of 2022 underscore the urgent and grave situation in New York. AABANY's new report, “Endless Tide,” continues to examine of the rise of anti-Asian hate and violence during the COVID-19 pandemic, by chronicling the efforts made in the past year and assessing their impacts through detailed data collection and analysis of anti-Asian incidents in New York City.

Co-executive and associate editors of "Endless Tide" will discuss the failings of the current legal framework and raise a call to action by elected officials, law enforcement, and community organizations to keep the AAPI community safe in America.
