Watch: A Conversation with Dion Lim and Mayor Lily Mei

ASF and FACS hosted a conversation with Dion Lim of ABC7 News and Mayor Lily Mei of Fremont on March 2, 2021 on anti-Asian sentiment during the pandemic and the recent attacks on elderly Asians in the San Francisco Bay Area and other cities in the United States. The program started with a brief history of anti-Asian sentiment in the United States, leading into a conversation between Dion and Mayor Mei about the incidents reported in 2020, and how it has escalated in 2021, how the number of actual number of incidents is much lower as members of the AAPI community tend to not report incidents, and areas of hope in the future based on the response in the community.

The video of the conversation is below and will be available until March 26, 2021.
