A Roundtable Discussion on the Atlanta Shootings
The alarming rise of anti-Asian violence, especially the shooting deaths of six women of Asian descent on March 16 in Atlanta, is prompting conversations about the intersections of racism and misogyny, dispelling stereotypes aboutsex work, and inspiring activism and allyship in support of the AAPIcommunity.
In this conversation, Notre Dame professors and PhD students will examine the intersectional nature of anti-Asian violence as well, discuss the roots of systemic racism, and explore the needs of AAPI communities now and in the future.
