Stopping the Hate and Starting to Heal: Living With and Through the COVID-19 Pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic has witnessed a surge in incidents of bias, discrimination, violence and hate directed against people of Asian backgrounds. This event, the first in a discussion series sponsored by the University of Pennsylvania Task Force on Providing Support to Asian and Asian-American Students and Scholars, the Penn Pan-Asian-American Community House (PAACH), and the Program on Asian-American Studies (ASAM), will feature two distinguished Penn alumni, City Councilmember Helen Gym and criminologist and community activist Cliff Akiyama, as well as Penn CAPS' Multilingual Psychologist Yuhong He. Cliff will provide some historical background and context for the challenges that Philadelphia’s Asian and Asian-American communities have faced during the pandemic, Councilmember Gym will discuss the city of Philadelphia’s response, and Yuhong will describe the impact on Penn’s student community. The dialogue and subsequent Q&A will be moderated by Penn PAACH Student Leader Shaina Zafar (C'21.)
