Stop Asian Hate: The Role of Community-Based Providers in Advancing Racial Healing

April 15th            11am-12pm CST

More than 3,800 anti-Asian hate incidents have been self-reported since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, and eight innocent people were killed in a mass shooting targeting primarily Asian women on March 16, 2021. Anti-Asian racism is not new. While COVID-19 has brought a wave of violence towards Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities, anti-Asian racism is deeply rooted in American history. Equity for the AAPI community means being visible in policy and practice discussions related to child welfare, youth justice, behavioral and mental health, education, and housing. Join the ACRC antiracism working group for a discussion with Connie Chung Joe, Executive Director of Asian Americans Advancing Justice – LA, to learn more about how you and your organization can support the AAPI community and advance racial justice and healing.
