We are living in unprecedented times with #COVIDー19 or the #Coronavirus. There has been a rise in anti-Chinese and anti-Asian discrimination and many efforts to combat it during this public health crisis.

The People’s Collective for Justice and Liberation presents a Townhall on Anti-Asian Racism on Saturday, March 28, 2020 from 3pm-5pm PST/ 6pm-8pm EST.

Asian American organizers, and other people of color we are in community with, will facilitate a conversation on race, struggle and solidarity in the time of a global pandemic.
