Understanding Asian Racialized Trauma
Date: Tuesday, April 27
Time: 11:00AM EDT
This presentation aims to help the Asian international student body of Penn and allies to start a conversation, centering Asian perspectives, about the rising anti-Asian hate we are witnessing nationally. We will discuss the unique ways in which Asians living in America are racialized as well as what our trauma responses can look like – in our history, to our health, and across our campuses.
