The Asian American Writers’ Workshop and PEN America, alongside members of the global literary community, are holding a virtual day of solidarity to call out hate in all its heinous forms. We stand in support of Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander communities that have been targeted by rising hate and racism in recent months during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The virtual day of solidarity will feature a daylong schedule of free activities including workshops, poetry readings, and a teach-in to celebrate and engage a wide range of Asian and Asian American voices.
