|This Thursday, March 26 at 2:30 PM ET/11:30 AM PT, ADL is offering our second webinar in the Fighting Hate from Home series to help unite and inform our community. We invite you to sign up now.
We are honored to be joined this week by Rep. Judy Chu, chairwoman of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus, and Rep Sylvia Garcia, a member of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. We will dive into how scapegoating and hate-mongering are surging during this dangerous and unsettling time, as we have seen Asian Americans, Jewish Americans, immigrants and other minority communities blamed for the pandemic.
Rep. Chu has long been a leader in the Asian Pacific American community’s struggle to head off xenophobia and violence that can have dangerous real-world repercussions. Rep. Garcia, whose Houston community has large Asian and Hispanic populations, has pushed back against unfounded accusations that migrants are to blame for bringing the coronavirus into the United States.
