This past Friday, Gayatri Agnew, who is a member of the Bentonville City Council, and Monica Kumar held a Stop Asian Hate vigil outside The Momentary in conjunction with a national day of action and healing. The vigil comes after a man shot and killed six women of Asian descent in Atlanta, Georgia and a former Bentonville fire captain was accused of assaulting a Vietnamese man in Hot Springs after asking him whether he knew this was America.
