TIME: Tuesday, June 2, 2020, 4:00 PM to 5:15 PM EDT
PLATFORM: Zoom webinar (call-in information will be provided following event sign-up)
DESCRIPTION: With the spread of COVID-19 in the United States, reports of racism against Asian-Americans have risen sharply, drawing renewed attention to issues of bias, immigration, and the place of Asian-Americans in society. The current surge of anti-Asian incidents highlights a troubling history, and reinforces the urgent need to examine, understand, and confront these issues that affect the lives of Asian-Americans, influence American perceptions of China, and ultimately affect Sino-American relations on the global stage.
Join the National Committee on June 2 at 4:00 PM EDT for a virtual program with Jennifer Ho and John Pomfret as they discuss the history of anti-Chinese/Asian racism in the U.S., the impact of coronavirus-related racism, and the importance of uniting across our communities to stand up against all forms of discrimination.
