Event Description

Since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, people of Asian descent around the world have experienced increased attacks, discrimination, and unfair blame for the development and spread of the coronavirus. In the United States, these attacks continue to rise exponentially with perpetrators emboldened by the normalization of racial slurs such as “China virus” that give tacit encouragement for bigotry and xenophobia.

Of course, Anti-Asian bigotry in the United States is nothing new. From the 1882 Chinese Exclusion Act to the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II to the recent Muslim ban, anti-Asian discrimination has been written into government policy that, in turn, has normalized everyday expressions of discrimination.

As recent the high-profile killings of four Sikh men in Indianapolis and food truck driver Shane Nguyen in Fort Wayne have shown, this discrimination is occurring in our state, our region of Northern Indiana, and in South Bend. 

Please bring your questions, stories, and ideas to join academic and community experts for this collaborative discussion about anti-Asian racism nationwide, in Indiana, and in local communities—and what can be done to stop it.
