Uncovering Asian and Asian American Solidarity: A Teach-in and Testimonial Space
Tuesday, April 27, 2021 | 11:45 AM-12:45 PM PT | Zoom Webinar
Asian and Asian American students, staff, and faculty at USF, and USF community allies are invited to share space together in solidarity and to process the continued experience of increased anti-Asian violence during the COVID-19 pandemic. Dr. James Zarsadiaz, Associate Professor of History & Director of the Yuchengco Philippine Studies Program, will provide some grounding history on anti-Asian racism in the United States and a panel of student leaders will reflect on the need for solidarity. There will be a testimonial space for Asian and Asian American community members to individually share their stories and be heard and seen as well.
This event is a collaboration between USF's Asian & Asian American Staff & Faculty Council (AAASFC) and Asian Pacific American Studies (APAS) program. Our University of San Francisco event co-sponsors include: the Bias Education & Resource Team (BERT), the Cultural Centers, Culturally-Focused Clubs Council (CFCC), Office of Diversity Engagement and Community Outreach (DECO), The Leo T. McCarthy Center for Public Service and the Common Good, University Ministry, Yuchengco Philippine Studies Program (YPSP).
