The Walter H. Capps Center for the Study of Ethics, Religion, and Public Life is proud to present this panel discussion on Asian American activism by national and local activists at UCSB on April 26, 2023.

Asian/Pacific Islander American communities have a long history of activism in the United States, particularly in response to anti-Asian racism and exclusion. In their struggle for equality and liberation from oppression, AAPI activists have developed social and political movements for immigrant rights, labor rights, educational equity, affordable housing, religious freedom, environmental justice, and more. This panel features several AAPI activists who will discuss how they became activists, their work on the leading edges of activism, and how more people can get involved.

Panelists include Diane Fujino, Professor, of Asian American Studies, UCSB; Manjusha Kulkarni, Co-Founder, Stop AAPI Hate, and Executive Director, AAPI Equity Alliance; Melissa Borja, Assistant Professor, American Culture, University of Michigan, and Lead Investigator, Virulent Hate Project; Artnelson Concordia, Instructional Support Specialist for Ethnic Studies, Santa Barbara Unified School District; and Naomi Joseph, Ph.D. candidate, Sociology, UCSB.

This event is both in person and live-streamed on our YouTube channel (link here).
