Biden At The Border

What A Day - March 18, 2021 - 24:53

A White gunman attacked three spas in the Atlanta area on Tuesday killing eight people including six women of Asian descent. The shootings happened in the larger context of increasing violence and racism faced by Asian-Americans. Yesterday we talked about the surge in migrants seeking asylum at the US-Mexico border. Today, we spoke to Atlantic staff writer Caitlin Dickerson to get a better sense of how we got here, how the Biden administration differs from Trump and Obama, and what’s to come. And in headlines: the ADL says 2020 marked a huge surge in White supremacist propaganda, the Movement for Black Lives doesn't support the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act, and Uber to treat drivers as workers in England.Show Links:Learning for Justice has put together a toolkit for how to respond to COVID-19 Anti-Asian racismhttps://www.learningforjustice.org/magazine/how-to-respond-to-coronavirus-racismDonate to the Asian American Legal Defense & Education Fundhttps://www.aaldef.org/Donate to the Asian Pacific Environmental Networkhttp://apen4ej.org/If you need support:Call 1-800-273-TALKAsian languages: 1-877-990-8585Text "CONNECT" to 741741Or visit the Asian, Pacific Islander, and South Asian American (APISAA) Therapist Directoryhttps://www.asianmhc.org/apisaaReport hate and harassment:https://www.standagainsthatred.org/reportFor a transcript of this episode, please visit crooked.com/whataday.
