Anti-Asian Racism, White Supremacy and Cross-Racial Solidarity – Virtual Town Hall

Thursday, April 8th, 12:30 – 2 pm
Town Hall on Anti-Asian Racism, White Supremacy, and Cross-Racial Solidarity

On Thursday, April 8, we will bring together activists and nonprofit leaders working to create safety, build multiracial solidarity, and uplift community solutions to eliminate violence against Asian communities without overreliance on policing and other carceral interventions. We will reflect on the impact of these racist attacks, and unpack attempts to whitewash systemic racism and the erasure of gender-based violence. We will discuss deep cross-racial solidarity and interdependence as an organizing lens and practice for a more sustainable path to community safety and explore considerations for PPGNY in our work as a reproductive health care and advocacy organization.

The event will be moderated by Fiona Kanagasingam, Chief Equity and Learning Officer, and Merle McGee, Chief Equity and Engagement Officer, and is held in partnership with our External Affairs team.

Cathy Dang, former Executive Director of CAAAV Organizing Asian Communities
