Monday, April 12, 2021, 12:00pm to 1:00pm



Asian Americans in our country continue to be victims of racism with increasing acts of violence ocurring since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. In this discussion we will highlight the impact of the pandemic on Asian-American communities, the micro-aggressions and acts of violence committed on individuals including our students, trainees and colleagues, and discuss strategies to stand together with our colleagues and vulnerable communities against hatred, racism, and violence.
