Virus of Hate in America
The Virus of Hate and Asian Americans
COVID-19 related verbal and even physical attacks targeting Asian Americans are escalating with no end in sight. Many have been severely injured and even murdered as a result of these brutal attacks, simply because of their ethnicity. Many victims are seniors, as they are defenseless targets. Why is this happening in a country that prides itself on being tolerant and equitable for all races?
As part of our continuing efforts to create a dialogue in finding solutions to prevent
these hate crimes, ACMA is producing a one hour stand-alone documentary called
“Virus of Hate in America” that addresses this crisis both on a local, regional as well as
national level. Narrated through the perspective of our next generation Asian
Americans, this program explores what societal changes they believe need to occur in
order to stem these long-standing negative archetypes and false narratives that have
targeted their communities for generations.
Our Documentary Project
This program will be balanced with showcasing the efforts by young Asian American leaders, including many local students, who are advocating for change in seeking social justice through dialogues and actions that can lead to changes in the hearts and minds of those who possess this virus in their hearts often simply the result of ignorance and fear.
Not only do we owe it to our elders and most vulnerable people in our community to share these stories, but we also have a moral obligation to our future generations of Asian Americans in building a better tomorrow for them free of this hate.
