The murders of eight people at several spas in the Atlanta area, most of them Asian American and women, marks only the most awful, recent contribution to a year-long spike in violence against Asians and Asian Americans in the US. The advocacy group STOP AAPI [Asian American Pacific Islander] Hate received some 3,000 reports of assaults against group members between March and December 2020 alone, many of them targeting women and seniors.
Join us for a conversation about the resulting toll on Asian and Asian American people and communities and about how these communities are pushing back. How are parents, family members, teachers and other caregivers supporting children at a time when physical safety is all but impossible to guarantee? How can the rest of us meaningfully support our Asian and Asian American family members, friends and neighbors?
Please bring your experiences, insights and questions as you join us for this important conversation. We will be offering live interpretation to Mandarin this evening on Zoom. 此活动将会有普通话翻译。
