Future Warrior

One of the biggest tools we have to fight racism is human connection. This is why Asian Heritage Month starting May 1st is so important. It is an opportunity to learn, to educate ourselves and to pay attention to a community that's sometimes overlooked. The hashtag #StopAsianHate has triggered the debate around violent attacks against people with Asian descent and has sparked global protests. Social media and therefore the decentralised form of communication played a crucial role in this movement. Having Asian backgrounds ourselves, we wanted to take a stand against cultural violence and the normalization of racial stereotypes that ultimately can lead to the dehumanization of Asian people. The ongoing discrimination shows the need for a drastic reform to address systemic racism. With our editorial "Future Warrior" we stand with the #StopAsianHate movement and want to continue to confront our society with uncomfortable truths and fight for a more equal, peaceful and diverse future.
