Addressing API Hate Series
On August 17th, 2021, a UC student named Tyler Adams was physically assaulted in front of USquare dorms on Calhoun St. after being berated with racist and xenophobic remarks. United Asian Advocates will be hosting a list of initiatives and events to shed light on the ongoing battle against xenophobia in America, in Cincinnati, and especially at the University of Cincinnati to stand in solidarity with Tyler and provide the community healing and support.
