Understanding the Current Crisis in America
Hate crimes toward Asian Americans increased by nearly 150% in 2020. However, discrimination toward the AAPI community has existed for centuries, but Covid and the recent shooting in Atlanta shooting has brought this issue to the forefront. Ultimately, the cumulative impact on Asian Americans is that many feel threatened, unsafe and unwelcome.
Christians are called to assert the dignity and value of every human life. We must hear the stories and take active steps to disrupt discrimination, racism and violence. Join us as we listen and learn from Jane Menning, Associate City Director of the Minneapolis/St. Paul Navigators, T. Cher Moua, Course Instructor at the Hmong Christian Institute, and Khanh Nguyễn, Founder & President of C3: Cultural Competency Consulting.
Our panel will discuss:
Honoring and including Asian Americans in the conversation on race and racism
Understanding the differences between stereotypes and generalizations
How churches can lead the way in dismantling anti-Asian racism
