Anti-Asian hate has received national attention with the recent killings in Atlanta and the rise of violence against Asian Americans since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, violence toward Asian Americans and Asian immigrants is not new to the U.S. or to Wyoming. Sisters Lena and Aura Newlin will discuss the history and legacy of anti-Asian hate from their vantage point as public health experts, 4th-generation Wyomingites, and descendants of Japanese Americans incarcerated in Wyoming during World War II.
