UCI Members are Invited to
Awaken’s Challenging Anti-Asian Racism and Xenophobia during COVID-19
May 21, 3:00 p.m.
With rising cases of COVID-19, a global shutdown, falling stock market prices and mass layoffs, there is no doubt many of our lives have been turned upside down in just a few short weeks. With 24/7 news updates and alarms going off in all directions, there is a thick air of overwhelm and anxiety across the globe.
This session will discuss how this panic and anxiety are impacting Asian communities and identify ways to respond to anti-Asian racism and show our Asian/Asian-American communities that we care.
Join us on May 21 at 3:00 p.m. Please register at the RSVP link and you will be sent the zoom link to participate.
This event is free and open to all students, faculty and staff at UCI. This event is brought to you by the Office of Inclusive Excellence Confronting Extremism Program. Please visit the Confronting Extremism webpage to find out more.
