From Yellow Peril to Islamophobia: How Asian Stereotypes Impact Our Lives Today

In the aftermath of the Paris and San Bernardino attacks, the U.S. has witnessed a resurgence in Islamophobia, recreating the kind of sociopolitical climate that led to the Japanese American internment in the 1940s.

JOIN US for an important panel discussion on how historical and current events have helped to perpetuate the marginalization of the Asian American community and how the resulting stereotypes impact our lives and the lives of our youth today.

Arun Venugopal, reporter and host of WNYC’s Micropolis, will moderate the discussion on how today’s rhetoric about Asian Americans play out in society and law. Q&A to follow.


Speakers:

Deepa Iyer, racial justice activist, lawyer, and author of We Too Sing America

Kermit Roosevelt, author of Allegiance and professor of law at the University of Pennsylvania

Chris Kwok, civil rights activist and mediation supervisor at the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission

This event is hosted by the Asian American Federation co-sponsored by the Asian American Bar Association of New York
