Event description

Description

In the aftermath of the Paris, San Bernardino, and Brussels attacks, the U.S. has witnessed a resurgence in Islamophobia, recreating the kind of sociopolitical climate that led to the Japanese American internment in the 1940s.

JOIN US for this important panel discussion on how historical and current events have helped to perpetuate the marginalization of the Asian American community and how the resulting stereotypes impact our lives and the lives of our youth today.

Arun Venugopal, reporter and host of WNYC’s Micropolis, will moderate a discussion among several thought leaders on how today’s anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim rhetoric plays out in society and law.


Speakers:

- Deepa Iyer, racial justice activist, lawyer, and author of the acclaimed We Too Sing America

- Kermit Roosevelt, author of Allegiance and professor of law at the University of Pennsylvania

- Chris Kwok, civil rights activist and mediation supervisor at the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission
