Following GAPABA's recent Statement in support of Black Lives, we present an important discussion on building Asian American allyship with Black communities. We will begin with a screening of the historical documentary Alternative Facts: The Lies of Executive Order 9066 about the false information and political influences which led to the incarceration of Japanese Americans during WWII, the murder of Vincent Chin and its impact on APA political race consciousness, and the rise of Anti-Asian Violence in the time of COVID. With Georgia now at the epicenter of Black Lives Matters protests following the killings of Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Rayshard Brooks and others, we want to discuss the intersectionality of violence against both the APA and Black/Brown communities, and how we can become better allies and accomplices.

Presented by: GAPABA, NAPABA and Stop Repeating History
