Thursday, May 28, 2020
11:00 am - 12:15 pm PST
USC Race and Equity Center and USC Asian Pacific American Student Services
Anti-Asian and Anti-Asian American racism are not novel and manifest in ways that are physically, emotionally, and virtually violent in our communities. Join Dr. Sumun L. Pendakur, Jade Agua, and Dr. Jonathan Wang to critically understand how this moment invokes and weaponizes “yellow peril,” Model Minority, and divide and conquer tropes that continue to cause harm. Gain key strategies to ready your institutional support and empower your Asian and Asian American students, staff, and faculty going forward.
