Was there a "moment" (an event, a learning experience, etc.) that moved you to take action or be involved in racial justice work? What was that "moment"?

Saw that! I think it’s question #3?
Kimberly A. Truong
47:15
I think so with some nuances like for some parents who are recent immgrants/refugees (who might not know the larger context of the American racial project)).

when we do look at police violence, we see a larger percentage of SEA being shot and killed by police when we look at the data on Asians as a whole. :/

Importance of the Census
Suk Bal

Great job jo! Feel free to pick more from the Q&A

Mary Yee: Didn’t the term “Asian American” originate in the struggle for ethnic studies in the 70s during the SF State struggle? I believe the Census adopted/cooped the term later. “Oriental” might have been the previous term,,
Kimberly A. Truong
01:25:53
I think Mary is right during the SFSU during the struggle for ethnic studies.
Suk Bal
01:26:55
whatever feels right!
Suk Bal
01:27:04
I will ask about colorism soon
Kimberly A. Truong
01:27:14
Yeji Lee: asked about how to engage people in conversations (immigrants vs. people who have been here for longer)
Emily Zhang
01:28:34
We are going to go into live Q&A (30 second final reflection question will be at the end)
Emily Zhang
01:28:45
How do you handle colorism in the Asian community?
Emily Zhang
01:34:31
How does one develop good judgment on when and where to center the Asian or Asian American narrative, and when and where to center other narratives? When anti-Black racism is brought up in my household, important but perhaps tangential questions about how Asian-presenting people are treated in America tend to come up. In order to truly stand with other BIPOC communities, we must examine ourselves and the ways racism affects our communities on both the giving and receiving ends of harm, but how do we organize the related (public and private) conversations while giving appropriate space to BLM?
