Stop Asian Hate Program

The Asian American Cultural Center's Stop Asian Hate program explores the impact of anti-Asian hate on our community. We discuss the impact of COVID, the history of anti-Asian rhetoric and laws in the US, and anti-racism activism. We offer workshops and education with the goal to build solidarity and trust among the campus community.
