Join us for a virtual gathering of AAAM members, community friends, and allies! This year, we are aligning with United Against Hate week (Nov. 14-20). Also, we will have Dr. Russell Jeung from SFSU to share important findings and insights from his research on anti-AAPI attacks during the covid pandemic. We will also have time for Q&A with Dr. Jeung, as well as a segment for community announcements!
Special Guest Speaker: Russell Jeung (Co-Founder of Stop AAPI Hate)
Professor of Asian American Studies at San Francisco State University, Dr. Russell Jeung is an author of books and articles on race and religion. He’s written Family Sacrifices: The Worldviews and Ethics of Chinese Americans (Oxford U Press, 2019); Mountain Movers: Student Activism and the Emergence of Asian American Studies (UCLA AAS Center, 2019); and At Home in Exile: Finding Jesus Among My Ancestors and Refugee Neighbors (Zondervan, 2016).
