Nearly every single US Senator –Republican and Democrat –voted Thursday in favor of a hate crimes bill aimed at the dramatic rise in violence and discrimination against Asian Americans during the pandemic. Illinois Democratic Senator Tammy Duckworth has been a vocal supporter of the legislation, which has a good chance of passing the House in the coming weeks. Duckworth is Asian American, and she has a new memoir called “Every Day is a Gift.” (Photo Credit: Duckworth Family)
