  1. ENGAGE: The Rise of Anti-Asian American Sentiment and Community Resiliency  ENGAGE: The Rise of Anti-Asian American Sentiment and Community Resiliency

    November 11, 2021 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm

    Anti-Asian American sentiment has spread across the U.S. like an epidemic, rising approximately 360% in 2021 alone. Discriminatory rhetoric used by politicians to describe the pandemic polarized the country and put Asian Americans at risk. However, is Anti-Asian hate truly a new phenomena? What is the history of racism against Asian Americans in this country? And how does it connect to the present discrimination we see? How has this community persevered, with the help of other BIPOC communities, to be strong while they continue to contribute to the fabric of American society? Join us for a lecture connecting the past to the present, and hear about the work of prominent Asian American leaders, activists, and students. Featuring LSA of American Studies Lecturer, writer and author, Frances Kai-Hwa Wang; students from the School of Social Work’s API Coalition; former Assistant Attorney General of Michigan and Executive Director of American Citizens for Justice, Roland Hwang; and MSU Law adjunct faculty and Executive Director of Street Democracy, Jayesh Patel. Students from the API Social Work Student Coalition will also be featured.

    November 11, 2021 - 3:00pm to 5:00pm

    This special conversation celebrates the School of Social Work's commitment to strengthening youth empowerment for community change. We have been leaders in the field during the past century, and look forward to advancing this work in the years ahead.

    For this, we are bringing together some of the nation’s premier “youth and community” thought leaders to discuss: What are some strategies for strengthening youth empowerment for community change, in a society that is becoming more segregated and more diverse? What competencies are required, and what issues arise in using them? What are some opportunities for social work and social work education?

    The program also recognizes Barry Checkoway for his contributions, as a scholar, teacher, and practitioner, on campus and in the community.
