ASIA 
RISING

part I

"Since the pandemic, hate crimes against the Asian community has risen to an all-time high. Racism is present in all parts of the world and it's not just about hate crime or having racist remarks thrown at you. It's also ignorance, lack of respect, prejudice and to a degree, xenophobia. We're on the precipice of a new age, a dawn that rises upon us, where we too need to rise to the occasion. We need to speak up, stand together, raise our voices and fight for an equal place in society. Representation has never been more important."
