Virus of Hate in America

Virus of Hate in America

A documentary film project to produced in response to the national crisis of hate. With this film, Asian Culture & Media Alliance hopes to bring attention to the horrific acts that have been committed toward Asian Americans in the United States through stories by surviving victims and their families.

The Virus of Hate and Asian Americans

Asian Americans are facing a national crisis in our country today.

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

Our goal is to ask questions and seek answers that will ultimately help foster a better understanding and awareness of the systemic and racial problems that affect our community. Through humanizing the stories we see on the news and on statistical reports, we can build compassion and empathy toward healing and eradicate the fears and ignorance that have allowed this dangerous virus of hate to spread across our nation.

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.
