Stop AAPI Hate: A Dialogue with Alma’s Asian Community

7:00pm - 8:00pm EDT April 22

Location: Virtual

With the continual rise of anti-Asian violence and discrimination since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, there are a lot of misconceptions, stereotypes, and misinformation about Asian Americans that the Asian Community here on Alma College’s campus wishes for you to know about.

We will be covering these topics: Asian stereotypes, such as the model minority myth & female exoticism; how positive stereotypes can still be problematic; being friends and family members with Asians as a white or non-Asian person & how to educate yourself; media representation; imperialism; Asian invisibility & humble Asian tendencies.

This event will feature 4 panelists from Alma College’s campus, Kristina Her (student of Chemistry, Pre-Medicine), Chih-Ping Chen (Associate Professor of English, Coordinator of Women’s & Gender Studies), Marina Stack (Transition Assistance Program Counselor), and Atulya Dora-Laskey (student of Political Science & History). This event will be held virtually via Zoom. Please register for the event link at tinyurl.com/AlmaAsianPanel
