In response to the rising harassment, discrimination, and bias against Asian and Asian American communities, Asian American Arts Alliance (A4) presents an online panel discussion that aims to address how we can confront and process the anti-Asian racism rhetoric under COVID-19.
Moderated by Jeff Chang, journalist, author, and Vice President of Narrative, Arts and Culture at Race Forward, this webinar will feature a panel of experts, including Dr. Alisha Ali, Associate Professor of Applied Psychology at New York University; Chris M. Kwok, advocate, attorney, and mediator with a 15-year career at the New York District Office of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission; and Hassan Naveed, Deputy Executive Director of The Office for the Prevention of Hate Crimes at NYC Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice. The panel will discuss what measures we can implement to protect ourselves and our communities.
