Asian, Asian American, and other racialized populations increasingly experience racism, hostility, and violence during the Covid-19 global pandemic. Fueled by recent white supremacist political figures and rhetoric, racism and xenophobia directly targeted Asian and marginalized communities. However, what often gets overlooked is that Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander groups in the U.S. have a long history of discrimination that predates the pandemic. Thus, this panel will feature speakers who will provide personal and critical perspectives of their experiences with racism and xenophobia (before and during the pandemic) and strategies for social change.
