RISE APA National Town Hall series: WEEK 2: WHERE HAVE WE COME FROM?

Friday, May 15, 2020

Our history, our roots: literary, sociological and community-based voices on the larger historical context of anti-Asian discrimination. Is what’s happening familiar from a big-picture perspective? How has harm against our community manifested in the past?

-Former U.S. Ambassador to China Gary Locke,
-Historian Erika Lee (author, America for Americans),
-John Jay College of Criminal Justice professor Kevin Nadal, and others.

“Rise: Asian Pacific America”: a series of online town halls to respond to the anti-Asian hate we’re all seeing throughout our diverse communities. Throughout Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, town hall participants will join elected officials, community leaders and others to discuss where we are today, where we’ve been as a community, and where we need to go, to rise up to the challenges we face in the near and far.
