Violence and harassment against Asian Americans has increased significantly across the country over the past year. In Portland, several Asian-owned businesses were recently vandalized. That came after two other recent bias crimes that targeted Asian Americans. We talk with Allie Yee, development and communications director at APANO; Yaejoon Kwon, assistant professor of sociology and comparative race and ethnicity studies at Reed College; and Artthew Ng, a student at Portland State University.
