ALBANY, N.Y. (WKBW) — New York State is opening up the conversation about Asian-American hate.

A public forum is being hosted by the New York State Division of Human Rights Tuesday at 3:00 p.m. to allow New Yorkers the opportunity to voice their concerns. It also aims to provide historical context for hate crimes statewide.
