“Thanks to the 45th President's inexcusable behavior, influenced mistreatment is causing anxiety. Being an offspring of Asian immigrants, I don't feel an overachiever. I am a common citizen, that is dealing in the crossfire. Creating this art is my refuge.”

Safety Tips for Those Experiencing or Witnessing Hate
5 Things to Consider When Experiencing Hate
•Safety First: Trust your instincts and assess your surroundings. If you feel unsafe and you are able to, leave the area.
•Stay Calm: Take a deep breath, limit eye-contact, and maintain neutral body language.
•Speak Out (If you can do so safely): In a calm and firm voice establish physical boundaries, and denounce their behavior and comments.
•Seek Immediate Support: Ask bystanders for support or intervention.
•Seek Emotional Support: Once you feel safe, take time to recover and reach out to someone to talk about what happened. Remember this is not your fault, and you are not alone.
5 Ways to Help If You Witness Hate
•Take Action: Approach the targeted person, introduce yourself, and offer support.
•Actively Listen: Ask before taking any actions and respect the targeted person’s wishes. Monitor the situation if needed.
•Ignore Attacker: Using your discretion, attempt to calm the situation by using your voice, body language, or distractions.
•Accompany: If the situation escalates, invite the targeted person to join you in leaving.
•Offer Emotional Support: Help the targeted person by asking how they’re feeling. Assist them in figuring out what they want to do next.
