In this installment, we speak to Andrea Chu, the Chicago and Midwest Regional organizer for Asian Americans Advancing Justice – Chicago about how she’s working to prepare Asian Americans and allies alike for the current wave of anti-Asian racism and violence.
Asian Americans Advancing Justice – Chicago is an organization that works in coalition on things that impact Asian Americans.
We fight for racial equity broadly, not just for Asian Americans.
One of the national projects we’re involved in is a hate tracker, where Asian Americans can report instances of anti–Asian American discrimination or harassment.
When more people get out in the streets, we will probably see more of an uptick in incidences of anti–Asian American bias.
