if you're living in the Northern Hemisphere, tomorrow marks the Spring Equinox. Given the challenging times we've had this week, let alone this past year, it can be a good time for self-reflection and consideration. What is it that you hope to accomplish or bring into reality during the rest of the year? It’s also a great time to think about spring cleaning, whether that is de-cluttering your home space, or organizing the files on your computer or phone. How can you let go of those things that are no longer serving you?
In light of the tragic loss and violence in North Georgia, we stand in grief and solidarity with the Asian-American Pacific Islander communities. In this week's Unplugged segment, Coach Colette shares insights from the nation’s leading coalition documenting and addressing anti-Asian hate and discrimination, Stop AAPI Hate. Did you know that there were 3,795 incidents of anti-Asian hate reported from March 19th, 2020 to February 28th, 2021? Or, that women reported hate incidents twice more than men? The shootings that happened this week shined a light on the increasing violence against Asian-Americans in this country and around the world. How will you choose to challenge hate, discrimination, misogyny, xenophobia, and white supremacy wherever you see it?
