Stuyvesant Community Discussion on Anti-Asian Violence

You're Invited to Join Us

Stuyvesant High School and the Stuyvesant Alumni Association are co-hosting a virtual community discussion to talk about about racism against Asian American and Pacific Islanders (AAPI), an issue that so profoundly affects our community. This event will provide opportunity for Stuyvesant alumni and current Stuyvesant students to share their experiences, opinions and questions on recent acts of racism and violence against AAPI, how racism and bias manifest, and how positive change can start within our own community.

Chris Kwok ‘92 of the Asian American Bar Association (AABANY) will be the moderator and will co-present a report on the subject with AABANY Executive Director Yang Chen ‘83. U.S. Congresswoman Grace Meng ‘93 will discuss anti-hate crime legislation, and resources for education and awareness. Joanne Kwong ‘93, President of Chinatown’s iconic Pearl River Mart, will discuss impacts to small businesses and growing activism within the community. Principal Seung Yu and SHSAA President Soo Kim ‘93 will give opening remarks.
