The dramatic increase in attacks against Asian Americans continues, with another last night in New York City's Chinatown.
Activists & lawmakers say they believe the attacks have not been getting enough attention.
@Weijia spoke with some who have been impacted by the violence.

Attacks on #AsianAmericans are growing at an alarming rate in the U.S. @nguyen_amanda of @RiseNowUS says there needs to be fundamental change - and people need to speak up: "The opposite of love isn't hate, it's apathy. The most powerful tool we have is our voice - speak up"

The @POTUS just signed our bill of rights into law. Today, 25 million survivors now have fundamental rights.
So grateful for the team and for all the advisers and supporters we've had to get to this historic moment. I am so grateful.
