In this interactive session, Richard Koo will provide some insights into the increased level of racial violence and stigmatism directed toward Asian Pacific Islander Desi Americans.  By exploring some of the history and dynamics at play, the participants will have an opportunity to share their perspectives with our presenter and discuss what steps can be taken on a personal level when confronted with a bias incident and on a community level to strive for solutions that could uplift all marginalized communities.
