Before spring break, we sent out a message of solidarity with our Asian American and Pacific Islander community, and condemning anti-Asian hate. As we return to our in-person classrooms with students, we know that this fight against Asian hate is ongoing.
Knowing that Asian families are reaching out, afraid of sending their children to school in the midst of daily hate crimes against Asians in our country, please commit to speaking with your students about this topic over the next week.
Here are resources for supporting your students and addressing AAPI hate as a learning community. Feel free to reach out to Tiffany Koyama Lane and Karen Liao, our PAT AAPI Month project leaders, if you would like any more suggestions or support re: resources.
