Supporting Asian Americans: A Film & Panel Discussion

Time: (ET)

Location: Gluck Theater

Amidst a global pandemic, another epidemic was resurging in the United States: anti-Asian hate and violence. Join us in person for an exclusive viewing of the documentary film The Race Epidemic about the rise in anti-Asian hate and violence during the pandemic, rooted in systemic and historic racism. Award-winning screenwriter and director Tony Shyu developed a documentary that dives deep into the history of America’s Asian American community through storytelling and interviews with prominent Asian American politicians. After the film, we invite you to a panel discussion of the film, where social workers and community members will weigh in on how we can better support Asian Americans in the WVU community and beyond.

Panelists: Dr. Yoosun Park, Stefanie P. Hines JD, Miki Demary-Andrews, and Reina Edwards
