Mic Icon Taking Action To Address Anti-Asian Racism And Violence

By Chartable

The last year has seen a rise in AAPI (Asian American Pacific Islander) violence. Today’s conversation explores the long history of this discrimination, and what we can each do individually and in our communities to help put an end to it. You’ll hear from former governor of Washington State, Gary Locke, CEO of Rise, Amanda Nguyen, co-founder of Stop AAPI Hate, Dr. Russell Jeung, and Emmy award-winning TV news anchor, Dion Lim. They discuss the negative impacts of the “model minority” and “perpetual foreigner” stereotypes, why education of Asian American history is vital to changing the narrative, and how we can help amplify Asian American voices and stories.
