ASIAN AMERICAN RESISTANCE: 150 YEARS AND COUNTING

May 6 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

ASIAN AMERICAN RESISTANCE: 150 YEARS AND COUNTING

Anti-Asian hate crimes in Atlanta, OC, Oakland, and New York are not new. As early as 1871, 19 Chinese Americans were lynched and killed in the Los Angeles Massacre. Asian Americans have been victims of racial profiling, scapegoating, and violence for over 150 years.

And we have resisted such systemic racism to claim our share of the American dream. Know our history; voice our resistance.
