The Rise of Anti-Asian Violence: Taking A Stand
Please join the Notre Dame Law ACS and APALSA Student Chapters and the SBA Diversity & Inclusion Committee, the Black Law Student Association, the Hispanic Law Student Association, and the LGBT Forum as we have a discussion with former prosecutor Judge Pamela Chen (EDNY), and two board members of the Asian American Bar Association of New York, Karen King and Chris Kwok, in discussing the rise of anti-Asian violence. At this event we will discuss the findings of a study done in conjunction with Paul Weiss in relation to the rise of anti-Asian incidences, the implementation of measures to combat racism--such as organizing Black-Asian unit rallies and forming undercover Asian police units to patrol Asian neighborhoods, and the difficulties in prosecuting these incidences as hate crimes.
