Did It Start With Covid?
A Discussion on Anti-Asian Racism, Faith, & Identity

In the last two months, reports of harassment and discrimination towards Asian-Americans have been on the rise. How should we understand this personally and in relation to our nation and its history? And what role have faith communities played to both support and oppose these racial realities? Our panelists will address these critical and very present day matters and help us consider how to respond and move forward.
