A conference about recent Asian-American discrimination due to the Covid 19 virus will be held this Thursday, April 30th at 3pm EDT, 9pm CET. It is co-hosted by the Global Veterans and Military Families Caucus and the Global Hispanic Caucus and supported by the Asian American and Pacific Islanders Caucus in formation. All are welcome, please feel free to invite non-caucus members as well!
The speaker is Quyen Nguyen, Chair of DA Colombia and the founder of Summit International Education. Quyen will be addressing issues raised in her article How it Feels to Be a Problem: We must all come together to fight back against the rise in discrimination with our voices, our actions and our votes.
Quyen stated that her "grandfather was a colonel in the Vietnam War and the head of one of the military departments. He spent 14 years of his life after the war in a Communist re-education camp and was only released when he needed serious medical attention. When he finally made it to the U.S. with the rest of my father's family (my grandma, aunts, uncles, cousins, etc.), he didn't miss a beat, and continued to advocate for democracy. I'm sure he'll be thrilled to hear that I'm speaking with members of this caucus."
Quyen holds an Ed.M. from Harvard University in International Education Policy and was a recipient of the Fulbright fellowship. She is also an associate professor of intercultural business communications and inclusive leadership at CESA, a top business school in Latin America. We look forward to seeing you!
This conference is being co-hosted in support of the Asian American and Pacific Islanders Caucus in formation.
