Tucson, Arizona (KGUN) — They call themselves “APIDA”. This is an acronym for Asian Pacific American and DigiAmerican.
Their key term is mostly American, but on the forums they shared their experiences when they said their neighbors weren’t very friendly.
“You’ll be told,’I can’t come from America,’ and’Well, why?'”
“I was actually yelled at by one of my patrons at the bar where I was working and was called a” dirty Asian “. “
“I was in the grocery store and a woman came out and stopped. She turned around and came back when she saw me.”
Despite the prejudice they have endured, Tucson is still at home and these conversations are education for non-Asian, Pacific, or digital people.
Lee Lambert, President of Pima Community College, said:
At the forum, Tucson Mayor Regina Romero said the city would begin investing in engagement with communities of all backgrounds.
“Next year, we plan to set up an equity office and engage the community in community safety programs.”
