The increase in hate crimes against Asian American and Pacific Islander people, including the tragic killing of six Asian women in Atlanta in March, has put the “Stop Asian Hate” movement at the center of many newsroom discussions.

AAJA Sacramento and the Sacramento Press Club collaborated for an important discussion on April 8 on the intersection of journalism and conversations about how to end this violence and support AAPI communities.

Chapter board member Pamela Wu, who is the director of news and media relations at UC Davis Health, moderated the discussion. The panelists featured chapter members Bobby Caina Calvan of The Associated Press, Judy Lin of CalMatters, Lonnie Wong of FOX40, and Alex Yoon-Hendricks of The Sacramento Bee.
