Opening Up Anti-Asian Racism Dialogues through Storymap

Our project examines historical struggles of Asian immigrants and Asian Americans. We will create three Storymaps marking the past, the present, and the future: 1) the historical timeline of anti-Asian and Asian American events and incidents; 2) an interactive ArcGIS Storymap of the present stories and data documenting anti-Asian racism during the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States, including a video series and an interactive Storymap; 3) a map suggesting the resources Asian immigrants and Asian Americans can turn to in the face of racist attacks. The interactive maps enable viewers to contribute to the current dialogues of anti-Asian racism.
