COVID-19, Racism and Xenophobia: A Discussion on How and Why the Pandemic is Affecting Asian Americans
The COVID-19 pandemic is disproportionately harming all people of color in the United States. For Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, one way this harm has manifested is in a rise in hate incidents. These incidents are fueled by both a long history of anti-Asian xenophobia and racism, and stigmatizing references to COVID-19 as a "Chinese virus."

Please join MAEC and the National Education Association for a webinar and live conversation where, through interactive dialogue and audience participation, we will examine the historical and current context of Anti-Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) racism and xenophobia, distinguish between hate incidents and hate crimes, and identify actions we can all take to address bigotry and discrimination.
