Pelham Perspectives: An Asian-American Pacific Islander (AAPI) Discussion
With the continuing rise of violence, hate, and bias targeted at the Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) community, the Town of Pelham Library invites all Pelhamites to join a Brave Space session focused on the AAPI perspective on Wednesday, April 21, 2021 at 8 pm.
A Brave Space is a safe and open place for all of us to authentically engage and collectively collaborate on our way forward together. The goal is to create a productive dialogue in which people speak honestly and critically from experience toward mutual learning and actionable insight.
Hear from your AAPI neighbors and friends on their personal experiences, cultural insights, and constructive ideas. There will be an opportunity for attendees to share their own experiences and ask questions. Together we can start to chart a course forward on a shared cause of stopping AAPI hate.
This Brave Space event will be held via Zoom on Wednesday, April 21, 2021 at 8pm. Register by clicking here to reserve your spot. Participants must agree to not record or photograph the event. For more information, contact Augusta Turner at email@example.com or 914-738-1234.
