Racism is never far below the surface—it's all too evident as Asian Americans experience a surge of racism during the pandemic. It's time to #ConfirmGupta to DOJ so she can get to work to address this rise of hate-fueled violence. Read more from @AAAJ_AAJC & @AAPIVictoryFund: https://t.co/BaCLx7FssZ
