Registration is required!
With anti-Asian hate crimes increasing during COVID-19, the Asian & Asian American Center (A3C) continues to find ways to support the APIDA (Asian, Pacific Islander, Desi American) community at Cornell.
Dr. Russell Jeung is a Professor of Asian American Studies at SF State University and Co-Founder of Stop AAPI Hate.
Professor of Asian American Studies at San Francisco State University, Dr. Russell Jeung is author of books and articles on race and religion. He’s written Family Sacrifices: The Worldviews and Ethics of Chinese Americans (Oxford U Press, 2019); Mountain Movers: Student Activism and the Emergence of Asian American Studies (UCLA AAS Center, 2019); and At Home in Exile: Finding Jesus Among My Ancestors and Refugee Neighbors (Zondervan, 2016).
In March 2020, Dr. Jeung co-founded Stop AAPI Hate with Chinese for Affirmative Action and the Asian Pacific Policy and Planning Council. It tracks incidents of COVID-19 discrimination to develop policy interventions and long-term solutions to racism.
