GO BACK TO THE BASICS

I was invited by #GloriaOh and #MichelleWoo of Top Edit, a new blog on Medium.com to write in support of their new blog launching #StopAsianHate against anti-Asian racism. Their note to me will better explain their initiative:-

Hi Shobana,

This month is Asian Pacific American Heritage Month and Medium is launching the #StopAsianHate blog in support of the movement against anti-Asian racism. Editors Gloria Oh and Michelle Woo share

  • This week, Medium is launching the #StopAsianHate blog to create space for these words and conversations and to chronicle the xenophobia and anti-Asian racism plaguing the country. Its name grows out of the powerful #StopAsianHate social campaign launched on GoFundMe in early March. We are exploring an array of perspectives  —  from Asian Americans and our allies  —  celebrating our humanity and our many diverse cultures while also reckoning with racial identity and systems that tolerate and encourage racism. 

The wider community of writers on Medium will be a key part of the blog: “We invite you to join the discussion by sharing your personal story, reflections, and solutions. Please share your essay on Medium and use the tag #StopAsianHate.” Here’s a couple of writing prompts from the announcement: 

  1. What does it mean to be co-laborers to advance racial justice? What does allyship look like to you?
  2. How do you express and celebrate your culture in your community?

Here is the link to my article for your kind reading:-
