The House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties held a hearing to address discrimination and violence against Asian Americans. At the start, members took part in a moment of silence for the Atlanta shooting victims in which eight people were killed. Six of the shooting victims were reportedly women of Asian descent. The first panel included testimony from several lawmakers, including Representatives Grace Meng (D-NY), Doris Matsui (D-CA), and Judy Chu (D-CA), along with Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL). Following their testimonials, the subcommittee heard from scholars and advocates, including actor Daniel Dae Kim. Lawmakers asked about the rise in anti-Asian American hate crimes, the impact of racist rhetoric by elected officials, and discrimination against the Asian American community during the coronavirus pandemic.
