City Roundtable on “Anti-Asian Racism and Intersectional Violence” | Friday, March 26 @ 12pm

The Women & Gender Studies Institute and the Department of Sociology, University of Toronto, invite you to a city roundtable on “Anti-Asian Racism and Intersectional Violence”

We are organizing this event in light of the recent shootings in Atlanta and the rise of anti-Asian racism during COVID. While the presence of anti-Asian sentiments may seem new to some, it is in fact part of a longer history of oppression that Asian communities have experienced and continue to experience.

Join us for a conversation on how we might collectively address and challenge anti-Asian racism and intersectional violence, with:

Elene Lam, Butterfly: Asian and Migrant Sex Workers Support Network;
Justin Kong, Chinese Canadian National Council—Toronto Chapter;
Rick Sin, Asian Canadian Labour Alliance – Ontario Chapter.

Moderated by: Robert Diaz, Associate Professor, Women and Gender Studies and Hae Yeon Choo, Associate Professor, Sociology

Register here in advance for this webinar.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
