As Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month draws to a close, join us to give voice to the lived experiences of members of the Asian and AAPI (Asian American and Pacific Islander) communities. Building upon programs presented by the University of Rochester throughout the month, panelists will share their personal and professional journeys in the face of anti-Asian and anti-Asian American hate in the United States.
Together, we will explore the complexities of the model minority myth and disinformation; the intertwined nature of racism and other forms of discrimination; and the erasure of histories and contributions due to xenophobia. A moderated question and answer session will seek to explore the roles individuals and institutions—like the University of Rochester—can play in in providing support to the Asian and AAPI communities and leading change.
This event is part of the University of Rochester monthly lecture and discussion series, REAL–Rochester's Equity & Access Leadership–Conversations. These virtual programs focus on authentic discussions featuring brave and candid dialogues around equity, measurable action, and meaningful change.
