Facilitate Improved Safety, Inclusion & Success
The recent rise in anti-Asian hate crimes shines a spotlight on the need for increased support and protection for Asian Pacific Islander Desi American (APIDA) students. Between January 1 and February 28, 2021, Asian Pacific Islander Desi Americans have reported being harassed at least 500 times according to Stop AAPI Hate. These numbers are outpacing complaints in 2020 where over 3,200 complaints were filed in all 50 states and in Washington, D.C.
Our expert presenter provides context into the rising anti-Asian harassment and insights into the diverse communities that make up the APIDA identities. Be prepared to better welcome, support and engage your APIDA community.
Improve understanding, inclusion and representation across your campus community.
Support your APIDA community, as well as educate your students, faculty and staff on the unique needs and concerns of this population of students and community members.
