Local Asian Allies Group Addresses Surge in Hostility in the U.S.

This 20-minute interview with Asian Allies co-founder Jolene Jang focuses on the increase in aggression, violence, and hate crimes targeting Asians across the country. Much of the reason for the hostility is related to blame for the COVID Pandemic being attributed to Asians and other AAPI (Asian American Pacific Islanders). 

Asian Allies is a Facebook group that invites allies of all backgrounds who can brainstorm about solutions and ways to educate the general public. Jang currently lives in the Seattle area and is a consultant and DEI (Diversity, Equity & Inclusion) trainer. Kevin P. Henry, Sound DEJI Coordinator, interviewed Jang.
