Join the Brandeis Student Union on Thursday March 25th at 8pm for an important conversation regarding the recent rising anti-Asian racism in the U.S. and how Brandeis can support the Asian and Asian American community.
Karen Phuong ‘22, Panny Tao ‘21 and Luke Liu ‘21 will give a presentation on the recent hate crimes against the Asian-American community with different historical contexts. They will then shift the discussion by talking about the divide between Asian-Americans and Asian international students in society, while sharing their experiences on encountering cultural misunderstanding and inequalities.
Professor Rajesh Sampath of the Philosophy of Justice, Rights, and Social Change at the Heller School, will then bring a new topic to discuss by sharing his thoughts on the current situation as well as his experiences being a South-Asian.
This safe space is welcome to everyone who is interested in facilitating discussion regarding this imminent topic that is circulating in America today.
