In Orange County, Coronavirus-Related Racism Toward Asians Leads To Calls For Action

OC is home to Little Saigon, Little India and — Taiwanese bakery buffs will note — the first U.S. location of 85°C which opened in Irvine.

But in the weeks since the pandemic hit California, anti-Asian incidents have made some in the community feel straight-up unwelcome, and led to a demand for action at the top levels of county government.

More than 200 people signed a letter that was sent to the Orange County Board of Supervisors Wednesday, calling on it to pass a resolution “denouncing the discrimination and hate crimes directed against Asian Americans in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
