This week, Sam, Diana & Christie reflect upon the anniversary of the Atlanta spa shootings as well as the increased anti-Asian sentiment and reported hate crimes over the past couple of years. They discuss safety, collective trauma and loss as well as personal experiences of harassment within and beyond NYC. Along with sharing their ongoing work to cope in both personal and professional spaces, they discuss creating space for joy, rest, and community healing.
Resources for the community (This is in no way comprehensive, so if you’d like to bring more awareness about a healing offering please reach out to us!):
Bridges Mental Health is a stigma-free hub for Asians, Pacific Islanders, and South Asian Americans (APISA) to discuss, navigate, and seek mental health care in NYC.
