In an effort to keep us talking about and keeping visible the injustices in our communities, Daily Work would like to take a minute to acknowledge the tragic shooting deaths of eight people in Atlanta and the associated racism and hate acts geared towards Asians, Asian Americans, and Pacific Islanders.
Here are a couple of resources for your consideration as well as information about an upcoming event:
