  • The issue of racism against Asians in the U.S. isn’t new, but it has become more serious after a string of shootings in Atlanta and other attacks against Asians throughout the country.
  • Protesters call for recognition of the lives of Asians and Americans from all different backgrounds: in this image, a protester holds a sign that says “Asian Lives Matter” in English, Japanese, Cantonese, Korean, Mandarin, Spanish, and more.
