Rates of anti-Asian violence and discrimination have risen since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Some Southern California parents are opting to continue remote learning to shield their children from possible anti-Asian harassment in schools and on the way to school. Thousands of people of Asian descent nationwide have reported verbal, physical, and workplace hate incidents since March 2020. 

Is there anything you want to share about how such incidents are affecting you? What do you want to tell others about how they’ve impacted you, your family, and your community? What do you want KCRW to cover in particular?
