*****THIS WORKSHOP IS PART OF THE TWO-DAY ANNUAL DAY OF ABSENCE/DAY OF PRESENCE EVENT AT THE EVERGREEN STATE COLLEGE: https://www.facebook.com/events/2240072412884080/
Do Asian Americans aid in White Supremacy? If so, how does that look like? Why does it matter for Asian Americans to challenge the concept of model minority, and how is it linked to anti-Black racism? Learn the ways in which our Asian-American history & positionality has conditioned us to be complicit in systems of violence hindering our ability for solidarity that we need and deserve. We will discuss examples of this as well as present key figures that challenge the ‘Model Minority’ narrative. In the end, there will be resources and information shared to aid in the struggle.
