"Anti-Asian Racism: An Exploratory Conversation," June 17 at Pitt.

Kaycee Orwig for the Pittsburgh City-Paper.

Several community members at the University of Pittsburgh will present "Anti-Asian Racism: An Exploratory Conversation" online on June 17.
 

Xenophobic racism and violence directed at Asian and Asian Pacific Islander communities have increased during COVID. This session is designed to facilitate an initial dialogue to understand better the challenges facing our Asian and Asian American colleagues and students, and to explore ways to address and eliminate anti-Asian racism at the University of Pittsburgh.
Those interested in attending this session will be encouraged to:
  • share experiences with and observations about anti-Asian racism.
  • offer insights and ideas to create a University environment where everyone is safe and feels that they belong.
  • suggest specific topic areas related to anti-Asian racism for future programming.
Panelists:
  • Judy Chang, Associate Professor, School of Medicine
