Standing in Solidarity Presents: Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month
In New Jersey and across the country, we have seen an alarming rise in hate and bias incidents against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. As we witness more verbal assaults, social media harassment, racist discourse in politics and media, and physical violence including murder —what can we do to better protect our AAPI communities and allow all of us to thrive? Join us for this gathering of experts, advocates and grassroots activists as we discuss the community, artistic and policy responses to these crucial issues. We thank the American Civil Liberties Union of New Jersey for curating this event.

To take part, watch this ABC News Documentary on your own time and then tune in to our panel discussion on 5/16: Stop the Hate: The Rise in Violence Against Asian Americans: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pi_1-a5BB74
