Liu to host northeast Queens virtual conversation to Stop Asian Hate


In response to the growing violence and hatred against Asian Americans in New York and all over the country, a Queens lawmaker is hosting a forum to address the ongoing issues.

On Thursday, April, 8, Senator John Liu invites northeast Queens residents to a Community Conversation to #StopAsianHate. The forum is one of several recent events seeking to address the rise in Asian-directed hate crimes, including one where a man assaulted a 65-year-old Filipino woman in Midtown Manhattan. The recent attack and others have left Asian Americans fearing for their safety and lives.

Queens leaders and residents recently came out in a show of solidarity for the Asian community at several rallies and vigils in Bay Terrace, Flushing and on the steps of Queens Borough Hall.
