Asian American leaders in San Diego are coming together to rally against the growing violence against Asian Americans.
A candlelight vigil was held at Seaport Village last night for the 8 people killed at spas near Atlanta. 6 of the people were Asian American Women and the salons were Asian-owned. Yesterday the group gathered to speak about their outrage due to the rising incidents of violence against Asian Americans.
The San Diego Asian Pacific Islander Coalition is calling on our local and national leaders to condemn the anti-API violence and to actively find solutions to shield our community from further hate and violence. We call on San Diegans to stand united against all forms of hate and violence towards marginalized communities.” The DA’s office encourages people to report these crimes if they see them or experience them. They can be contacted directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 619-515-8805.

By the way, March Madness begins today!
The "March Madness" NCAA men's basketball tournament gets underway today (March 18th) with the First Four games, one year after 2020's tournament was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. Even though it is being played this year, the pandemic is still affecting the tournament, with players, coaches and staff under tight restrictions about where they can go, although they're not calling it a "bubble," and with daily Covid testing.
Additionally, nearly all the games are being played in the Indianapolis area because of Covid, with limited fan attendance. There's been just seven positives out of 6,900 coronavirus tests analyzed as of yesterday, and all 68 teams selected for the tournament have been cleared to play.
