Co-sponsored by: Asian/Pacific American Librarians Association (APALA) and American Library Association’s (ALA) Office of Diversity, Literacy and Outreach Services (ODLOS)
In light of the outbreak of COVID-19 (also known as coronavirus), cases of racism and xenophobia against Asians and Asian/Pacific Americans have surged across the world. In the United States, there has always been a deep history of xenophobia towards Asians.
This webinar will feature two experts to discuss the issue of Anti-Asian sentiment, and will also focus on teaching resources in countering xenophobia.
