New York-based Asian Americans who shared their experiences of pandemic-fueled racism with TIME gather for a virtual roundtable discussion on contextualizing anti-Asian racism during the coronavirus pandemic. Moderated by photographer Haruka Sakaguchi, the discussion will ask the participants to reflect on what led them to come forward with their stories and be seen, what it means to be Asian in America, and building cross-cultural understanding toward racial equality.
