Join us next week on April 13th at 4pm for a chance to check-in, talk about recent stressors impacting the AAPI community, and brainstorm best ways for coping amidst everything. All are welcome.

Given the recent anti-Asian violence in Georgia, we'll also be using this space to check-in about racial trauma in our community. We aim for the check-in to provide support and validation, and will continue to host these discussion spaces in the future.

“I am Korean-Chinese, born and raised in China. When I was small,
I hated being multicultural, because I didn’t feel like I fully belonged to
either of the “majority” groups.
After I moved to the States, the identity confusion even made me hate
myself as my skin color became more salient among this multiracial
environment in New York.”

Introducing a new segment: Still Me, Still Learning: An Outlet
COVID-19 has made starkly visible the enduring racial injustices before the pandemic. Unsurprisingly, Black, Latinx and Indigenous communities have disproportionately borne the burden of disease given longstanding racial and socioeconomic inequities. Neither should the rise in anti-Asian racism feel unfamiliar, given the historically conditional acceptance of Asian Americans.

Drawing from past conversations, lectures and workshops, this digital exhibit provides a space for students to process questions about identity, racial justice and oppression. It uses art as a mode of critical self-reflection, working through our Asian American community’s own struggles with increased hate crimes and our role in a seemingly binary race war that employs us as racial wedge. Stay tuned for featured artwork and check out the website for the full online exhibit: https://www.chongitychongchong.me/still-me
