On March 16, 2021, a series of shootings occurred at 3 spas in the metropolitan area of Atlanta, Georgia, United States, killing 8 people. 6 of the 8 victims were women of Asian descent. A suspect is Robert Aaron Long, who is 21 years old. According to the interview with the police, Long stated that he was motivated by sexual addiction that conflicted with his religious beliefs.

After the heartbreaking Spa shootings in Atlanta, people showed their support for Hyun Jung Grant’s 2 sons through donations on Instagram. Raising over $2 million in one day, the brothers uploaded appreciation posts for the people donating. They shared their story and thanked everyone for providing them with hope that they might be able to rebuild their lives.

In addition to the citizens, the government also took steps to protect Asian communities. Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms of Atlanta stated that no matter what Long’s motive was, the city would provide resources and protection to Asian communities as a result of the shootings. Many reports regarding hate incidents that targeted Asian-Americans have occurred recently. President Biden strongly declared that everyone must work together to prevent further hate crimes.
