AAPI Resources

While Anti-Asian racism has a long history in the United States, we have seen a dramatic increase in violence and bias against Asians and Asian Americans. These resources are meant to support those who identify as Asian, Asian American or Pacific Islander as well as provide ways to get involved for anyone.

CC Conversation on the Intersections of Anti-Asian Racism

The model minority. The perpetual foreigner. Fetishization. For centuries, the United States has casually perpetuated anti-Asian bias and codified discrimination like the Exclusion Act, which prevented Chinese from becoming citizens, the incarceration of Japanese-Americans and Japanese in internment camps during World War II, the decision to drop nuclear bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and the use of chemical weapons in Vietnam, among other atrocities. Our failure to appropriately cover these topics in education has led to a collective amnesia that has many bewildered by the recent increase in attacks on Asians in the U.S. Join Yogesh Chandrani, Ph.D., Aline Lo, Ph.D., Mateen Zafer, and Amairani Alamillo '16 for a CC Conversation on the Intersections of Anti-Asian Racism moderated by Rosalie Rodriguez. Together we will explore, the roots of anti-Asian discrimination, its intersections with class, xenophobia, and misogyny, as well as the beauty of the Asian diaspora and the path to healing as a community.
