Presently, East Asians and Asian Americans are facing waves of discrimination and challenges over increased incidents of hatred and prejudice due to the COVID-19 pandemic and its origination from China (Balvaneda et al., 2020). The New York Police Department recorded hate crimes against Asians at a rate of 8 times higher in 2020 than in 2019 (Asian American Bar Association of New York & Paul, Weiss, 2021).1 A nonprofit organization, Stop AAPI Hate, reported in May 2021 a total of 6,603 hate incidents targeting Asian Americans nationwide since March 2020 (Jeung et al., 2021).2 The massacre of six Asian American women in Atlanta on March 19, 2021, is just one example of many.
