Cosponsored Webinar: State of Play: Local, National, and Intersectional Responses to Addressing Anti-Asian Violence and Building Durable AAPI Immigrant Power
April 21, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDTFree
While the significant and tragic rise of anti-Asian violence in recent weeks has caught the attention of the general public, coordinated and strategic efforts led by AAPI organizations, networks, and coalitions to respond to anti-Asian violence have been in place since before the pandemic began early last year. Those efforts have been born of decades-long organizing and advocacy work, work that has been underfunded and invisibilized.
Join GCIR for a conversation with local and national AAPI leaders to learn more not only about the narrative, policy, and solidarity efforts to address anti-Asian violence but also about opportunities to build durable AAPI immigrant power across the country.
