#StopAsianHate has become prominent focus within mainstream media, as hate crimes and acts of discrimination against members of Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities has increased. This presentation will explore historical and contemporary examples of racism and discrimination within these communities and explore their impacts on mental health and well-being. Participants will be given tools to discuss and address racial trauma and oppression with participants. This presentation is hosted by the McSilver-led Community Technical Assistance Center of NY (CTAC).
