When Hate Hits You: Responding to Anti-Asian Sentiment
The JACL presents workshops on anti-Asian sentiment and hate crimes at college campuses and student conferences throughout the country. The workshop explores the history of the Asian American community
and the historical context in which anti-Asian sentiment and
stereotypes have evolved. Participants will learn about the history
and causes of anti-Asian sentiment, learn to recognize the differences
between hate crimes and hate incidents and engage in real life
scenarios dealing with defamation and hate crimes. The workshop will leave participants with the tools to become effective advocates for their community by empowering them to identify and respond to anti-Asian sentiment and racism.
