|Title:||Panelists : attacks against Asians spurring political awakening|
|Date Issued:||05 May 2021|
|Publisher:||Honolulu, HI : East-West Center|
|Abstract:||Attacks against people of Asian descent aren't new in the history of the United States, but the political landscape in the wake of a spike in anti-Asian incidents is different, US Rep. Ted Lieu told attendees at a recent East-West Center online seminar, "EWC Live: Asian Americans Unsilenced." Quick take:|
- Attacks against Asian Americans have been on the rise during the pandemic and may increase further as the country reopens.
- With close attention to the issue in the Biden administration and Congress, US Rep. Ted Lieu said the community is now in a different political era.
- Some advocacy groups have pressed for more Asian / Pacific Islands representation in President Biden’s cabinet.
-Incidents are also up in countries such as Canada, Australia and New Zealand, leading some to call for involvement by international institutions like the UN and World Bank.
