CPC at Columbia University Irving Medical Center AAPI Employee Resource Group
On April 7th, Steve Yip, CPC Director of Operations, and a veteran of the seminal Asian American social movements of the late 60's and 70's, joined a Columbia University Irving Medical Center AAPI Employee Resource Group panel discussion with Lillian Tsai, a consultant and speaker on cross-cultural fluency from Portland, Oregon, on the rise and sources of the rise of anti-AAPI hate.
Steve concentrated on the historical precedent of cross-community collaboration and influences with the African American struggle's impact on new Asian American social and political emergence as a foundation on building understanding and changing the discourse. Lillian Tsai provided a historical overview of anti-Asian hate called "171 Years of Bad Days."
Over 165 persons participated in the virtual lunch hour event.
