People take part in a rally against hate and confront the rising violence against Asian Americans at Columbus Park in the Chinatown section of Manhattan borough of New York, on Sunday, March 21, 2021.

Six of the eight people killed last week in shootings at three Atlanta-area spas were Asian American women.
