WHAT:2020 brought consciousness and more awareness than ever before to the deep-seated, systemic, and systematic racism faced by Black Americans in our country. As we turned to 2021, a wave of horrific, racially-motivated murders and acts of violence hit the Asian-American community, shining a light on how racism against Asian-Americans plays out in communities.

Join us to explore and understand more about racism against the Asian-American community, racial triangulation, model minorities, and the intersection of gender and racism against Asian individuals.

This workshop will be led by Dr. Nabina Liebow. Dr. Liebow is the Director of the College of Arts & Sciences’ Leadership and Ethical Development Program at American University. In her role, she seeks to make ethics education accessible to students from all backgrounds. Her academic research is focused on the intersection of ethics and race.

WHEN: Thursday, June 10, from 7:30 – 9:00 PM Eastern Time
