In May 2020, JANM hosted a program in response to the surge of prominent Anti-Asian attacks where we reflected on violence in our community’s past and future. Now, almost a year later, with the COVID-19 pandemic having changed how we all move through the world, the renewed visibility of hate crimes in our community is still a concern and the mass shooting in Atlanta has highlighted the vulnerability especially of low income women and elders. How do we center these voices and needs in our work? What have we learned over the last year about our responses to violence and how we seek justice and safety? What work is there still to do?
In a conversation moderated by Karen Ishizuka, Chief Curator at JANM, Elena Shih, Professor of American and Ethnic Studies at Brown University, Azadeh N. Shahshahani, Legal & Advocacy Director at Project South, and Cynthia Choi, Co-Director at Chinese for Affirmative Action and Stop AAPI Hate, will share their insights and experiences over the last year and spark dialogue around these questions for our collective growth.
This program is a presentation of JANM’s National Center for the Preservation of Democracy and is made possible through a generous contribution from MakeVisible.org
