I’m struggling to find the right words for today, but I hope it’s quite clear that we are supporting the AAPI community. Our hearts are heavy with the tragic violence and racism against the Asian community. We’ve compiled various articles and resources in this week’s LCR, including personal essays, places to donate, and how to step in when someone is being harassed. As a reader, if you are part of the AAPI community, please be careful, and if you are an ally, take this opportunity to show solidarity and continue to actively fight anti-Asian racism and violence. Sending love to you all.
