Week 1: The State of Asian America Today

Rise APA held a conversation featuring Viet Thanh Nguyen about the state of Asian America in the face of COVID-19.

Why we feel this conversation is necessary, and an overview by diverse voices of what’s happening across the country — hate crimes, anti-Asian sentiment, communities struck both by COVID-19 and the virus of racism.

With guests David Henry Hwang (acclaimed playwright, M. Butterfly and Soft Power), Viet Thanh Nguyen (Pulitzer Prize winner for The Sympathizer), Jenny Yang (writer and comedian), Cynthia Choi (Chinese for Affirmative Action and Stop Anti-AAPI Hate), Dale Minami (Minami Tamaki LLP and lead counsel for Korematsu v. United States) and Bo Thao-Urabe (Coalition of Asian American Leaders and former Obama appointee to the White House Commission on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders).
