Are hate crimes against the Asian American community the new normal and what are journalists doing to cover this issue? With consequential midterm elections coming up, will this issue drive AAPI voters to the polls?

NBC News NOW anchor Vicky Nguyen, who hosted two specials on “The Racism Virus”, will speak with journalists, activists, and thought leaders at the forefront of this issue. MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki will give a “big board” simulation on what to watch for from the AAPI vote in the election.
