Invisible Wounds – Discussion and Resources on handling Asian-American Discrimination

May 21 7:00pm to 8:30pm

Registration Required. Click here to register.

Plainsboro Public Library, South Brunswick Public Library, and East Brunswick Public Library will collaborate to host an Asian-American discrimination awareness program on May 21st (World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development) at 7pm through Zoom.

We aim to provide a venue through which people can share their experiences, thoughts and fears, in addition to resources and ways to handle the discrimination faced by the so-called “model minority”. Asian-American discrimination can be insidious and easy to overlook, but it is very real, and our goal is to educate our communities on how to identify and prevent it.

A series of panelists will speak on different aspects of the subject, such as the impact of rhetoric, or what to do when you become a target or audience of racial discrimination. Each will be followed by a conversation segment in which the audience is invited and encouraged to participate by asking questions or sharing their own views and experiences.

Everyone is welcome to participate!

If you are interested in sharing your thoughts but are not available on May 21st, or are not comfortable speaking in front of an audience, we will gladly take video/audio submissions and compile them to share during the program. Clips can be sent to Joyce Huang at jhuang@plainsborolibrary.org. (For Chinese speakers who are uncomfortable speaking in English, you are welcome to send your submission in Chinese, and we can translate and subtitle it.)
