Understanding the Roots of Anti-Asian Violence

Anti-Asian violence is systemic violence - rooted in systems of white supremacy, heteropatriarchy, and imperialism. Ending anti-Asian violence requires the dismantling of these systems upon which it thrives.

Lecture Description

This talk offers a historical diagnosis of the present moment of resurgent anti-Asian racism, situating it within a longer US history of settler colonialism, imperialism, and racist misogynist violence. It will highlight the role of grassroots activists fighting this systemic violence at its roots, through struggles for affordable housing, for healthcare, against policing, that center the needs and visions of impacted communities.
