When the coronavirus pandemic started, a noticeable rise in violence against the Asian American and Pacific Islander community began. From March 2020 to March 2021, Stop AAPI Hate, an organization dedicated to spreading awareness of and compiling data on crimes against the community, received reports for 6,603 hate incidents. PBS NewsHour Correspondent Amna Nawaz continues a series of conversations with leaders in the AAPI community with Bing Chen, president and cofounder of Gold House, a nonprofit organization that is focused on authentic representation of and equity for the AAPI community, about a new generation of AAPI organizing, and the power of impact entrepreneurship to address anti-Asian violence.
