Asian American Business Development Center (AABDC), joining with eight national businesses and community organizations, is bringing together academic, community and business leaders representing not only various sectors and geographies, but also the largest New Majority communities to set an example of standing in solidarity. Scholars and nonprofit leaders will explore the root causes of racism and xenophobia against our communities; highlight the issues our communities are facing; and debate solutions that are needed at this moment to combat racism and xenophobia. Together, they will identify solutions at local and national levels with the goals of reducing and eradicating these social ills. Every attendee will leave with notes on the most impactful ways individuals and organizations can make a difference.
Webinar I: Standing in Solidarity Scholars will examine the historic background and present-day circumstances about the causes of racism and xenophobia against New Majority Communities.
