The global COVID-19 pandemic began one year ago. As we continue to live throught his time, xenophobia, which is a fear, prejudice or hatred of people from other countries, continues to thrive alongside the pandemic. 

This past year since COVID-19 has been circulating, Asian-Americans and Asians around the world continue to experience heightened levels of verbal and physical attacks. We are still seeing a rise in anti-Asian racism in its most explicit form all across the United States. 

This workshop discusses the impact COVID-19 is having on Asian/Asian American communities both here at Ohio State and nationwide. We'll begin by discussing the ways in which anti-Asian racism has manifested since the pandemic, and the impacts the rise in anti-Asian racism has had on Asian and APIDA communities. Our dialogue will then shift to highlighting the history Asian Americans have with this type of racial oppression. We'll then address how we can raise awareness of the ways others can strive for allyship with our APIDA students, colleagues, friends, and loved ones. 

Join us in community as we address this important facet of the COVID-19 pandemic and formulate ways that we can each play a role in interrupting bias and creating safe and inclusive communities.
