Learn the roots of anti-Asian discrimination in America.

The COVID-19 pandemic has seen a resurgence of anti-Asian sentiment and violence in the United States. However, racist stereotypes about Asian Americans are nothing new and have strategically served the interests of those in power long before this moment.

Jenny Lee, Professor of English, Humanities, and Asian American Studies at the College of Lake County, will discuss the roots of anti-Asian discrimination and anti-Asian violence in America and the ways in which anti-Asian stereotypes have emerged and evolved over time. Attendees will come away with strategies to recognize and challenge these stereotypes in their communities.
