COVID-19 and anti-Asian Racism: Impacts, Historical Oppression, Action
The global response to COVID-19 has meant a reiteration of anti-Asian racism and scapegoating. Since January 2020, Asian and APIDA communities have lived with unceasing, racially-motivated attacks, ranging from verbal berating and humiliation to brutal acts of violence targeting our communities' most vulnerable.

This workshop discusses the impact COVID-19 is having on Asian/APIDA communities both here at Ohio State and nationwide. We'll begin by discussing the ways in which anti-Asian racism has manifested since the pandemic, and the impacts the rise in anti-Asian racism has had on Asian and APIDA communities. Our dialogue will then shift to highlighting the history Asian Americans have with this type of racial oppression. We'll then address how we can raise awareness and take action with our APIDA students, colleagues, friends and loved ones.

Join us in community as we address this important facet of the COVID-19 pandemic and formulate ways that we can each play a role in interrupting racism and creating a safe and inclusive campus and community.
