Description

More than 100 students, faculty, and community members attended the "Racism and Violence After 9/11: The Oak Creek Shootings in Perspective" event, a discussion forum cosponsored by the Asian American Studies program in response to trends of hate crimes and incidences of violent speech on the OSU campus and against Asian American communities more broadly.

A panel of students and faculty from across campus spoke about various historical, political and social aspects of the context of recent trends of anti-Asian violence and hate speech; a moderated discussion followed, focusing on questions of activism and relationships between campus activities and recent national and international trends. More information about this event can be found on the DISCO website.
