Note: This is a recording of a webinar held on September 29, 2021.
Since early 2020, Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities across the country have been subjected to racist physical and verbal attacks sparked by the pandemic. Thousands of incidents have been reported to the Stop AAPI Hate coalition, which consists of the Asian Pacific Policy and Planning Council (A3PCON), Chinese for Affirmative Action, and the Asian American Studies Department of San Francisco State University. The Stop AAPI Hate coalition has been working to track and respond to incidents of hate, violence, harassment, discrimination, shunning, and child bullying against AAPIs. This webinar will describe partners and investments needed to address racism and discrimination toward AAPI communities and ways in which public health professionals can help stop anti-Asian hate.
The course contains two modules: a content module and a resources and evaluation module. After accessing both modules, learners will earn a certificate of completion. When the certificate is available, learners will see a Certificate button on their dashboard.
This recording is approximately 90 minutes. There are no prerequisites. Participants will need a broadband internet connection (Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox are preferred browsers) and computer speakers. For technical support, please contact email@example.com.
