This collective dialogue will center on how our APIDA/AAPI community has been navigating life since the pandemic started. Space will be made to discuss feelings of grief, loss, and anger around violence and racism against our community, and feelings of disorientation, confusion, and frustration that have come with the economic and socio-political pressure and urgency for the country to return to “normalcy” when the world around us feelings nothing near normal.

We will discuss the following questions:

  • How do we deal with this sense of whiplash?
  • How can take the time to heal when others around us seem to pretend that nothing has happened?
  • How do we handle new knowledge about certain attitudes and beliefs of others and “individual freedoms” vs collective caretaking and responsibilities?
  • What resources and support can we connect to?
  • What can we do to advocate for our needs and wants?

When we are using the word “Asian,” we are referring to Pacific Islander, Southeast Asia, South Asia, West Asia, Central Asia, and East Asian cultures. In the Asian community, there are 48+ different ethnicities and over 300+ languages and dialects. We believe any level of Asian and intersectional identities must be included to have an authentic representation of our communities.
