The Women and Gender Studies Institute and the Department of Sociology, University of Toronto, invite you to a community roundtable on “Anti-Asian Racism and Intersectional Violence”
We are organizing this event in light of the recent shootings in Atlanta and the rise of anti-Asian racism during COVID. While the presence of anti-Asian sentiments may seem new to some, it is in fact part of a longer history of oppression that Asian communities have experienced and continue to experience.
Join us for a conversation on how we might collectively address and challenge anti-Asian racism and intersectional violence, with:
Elene Lam, Butterfly: Asian and Migrant Sex Workers Support Network;
Justin Kong, Chinese Canadian National Council—Toronto Chapter;
Rick Sin, Asian Canadian Labour Alliance - Ontario Chapter.
Moderated by: Robert Diaz, Associate Professor, Women and Gender Studies and Hae Yeon Choo, Associate Professor, Sociology
