Combating Racial Profiling of Asian and Asian Immigrants: A Guide to Advocacy and How to Take Action

July 29, 2021

The spike in anti-Asian hate and violence since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, along with the racial profiling and unjust prosecutions of Asian American and Asian immigrant scientists, researchers, and scholars, particularly under the Department of Justice’s “China Initiative,” have caused immeasurable harms to our communities and created an environment of fear. Discrimination and racism against Asian Americans and immigrants is inextricably tied to our nation’s history. In this latest wave of resurgent xenophobia against Asian Americans and immigrants, protecting our civil rights has never been more important and we must take action to advocate for policies that empower communities. Speakers from the government, civil rights organizations, and academia will share their insights on ways for individuals to engage in policy advocacy, community organizing, and building narratives to speak up against racial profiling and lift up the voices of impacted people.
