The recent examples of violence and hate against Asians and Pacific Islanders in America are the latest in a long series of brutal attacks on this community. While misinformation about COVID-19’s origins have led to a troubling rise in these acts, Anti-Asian sentiment has a long and dark history in our culture. What is media’s role in addressing this issue, and shining a light on the need for representation, diverse portrayals, and inclusive storytelling in all aspects of our culture? This PaleyImpact program convened leading figures to discuss media’s powerful shaping influence on this issue, and its role to inform, educate, and make an impact on the subject of discrimination against members of the Asian and Pacific Island community.
