It's KRCL Spring Radiothon and your opportunity to support the voices, songs and stories that have been by your side during an unprecedented year.
Reframing the Conversation: The Rise of Anti-Asian Hate in the Time of the Covid-19 Pandemic, Humanizing Black Men with The Sojourner Group
Experts from campus and the community discussed how difficult it can be to be phenotypically Asian or of Asian descent during this time.
Reframing the Conversation "brings together experts from across the U of U campus and the community to spark important conversations around racism, othering, and safety. With these conversations, we are striving to counteract the growing culture of othering with a culture of belonging." Presented by the U of U, Department of Equity Diversity and Inclusion
The panelists were composed of those with expertise and experience with discrimination against Asian peoples and minorities. The roundtable type of discussion began with what it means to be a student at the U, particularly those affected by discrimination in coordination with the pandemic.
