APAWLA introduces Thinking Out Loud, member-driven small group discussions to talk about issues impacting the Asian American and Pacific Islander communities. The idea for this program came from the desire to carve out and hold space in our busy lives to learn, reflect and talk with our peers about issues impacting our communities. We hope Thinking Out Loud will result in APAWLA members developing their own understanding of, and engaging others about, important social issues.

How it works. We will send out a syllabus for each small group discussion. Each syllabus should take approximately two hours to complete. If you are interested in participating in the group discussion, sign up before the deadline. Discussion groups will be held at least two weeks after the syllabus is announced. The discussion groups are member-driven, so there will be no facilitators. We will provide questions to help kick off the conversation. We will aim to create small groups of no more than four participants. The small group discussions are open to current APAWLA members.

Chapter 1: Exploring Anti-Asian Racism and Violence (total syllabus time: 2 hours, 15 minutes)

April 20, 2021
6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
RSVP by clicking here.
Review the readings before the discussion by clicking here.

We will explore and reflect on anti-Asian racism and violence. This is a topic that hits close to home. Most of us have experienced or know someone who has experienced an anti-Asian incident. We know this is not a new issue. The recent spate of anti-Asian hate and violence has brought renewed attention to this issue. The materials discuss the history of anti-Asian racism in America; statistics, stories and reactions about recent anti-Asian incidents and hate crimes, including against Asian American women; paths forward based on community and multiracial alliance building; and how to actively take a stand against anti-Asian harassment.

The first discussion will be held on April 20, 2021 from 6pm to 7pm. Please RSVP here by April 16 if you would like to attend. We will send out Zoom information, discussion guidelines and questions to those participating. If you have any questions, please contact apawlacivicengagement@gmail.com.
