Model Minority and Yellow Peril in the COVID-19 World

APIDA Heritage Month Online Event

Event Details

Friday, April 17, 2020
All day
With the sudden and rapid outbreak of COVID-19, fears show how the Model Minority Myth has given way to renewed Yellow Peril ideology that recasts APIDA folx as vectors of disease. While the virus does not discriminate, misinformation and xenophobic rhetoric has APIDA individuals – especially those perceived as Chinese or Chinese-American – faced with hostility. Join us, w/ MSC Social Justice staff, as we continue to explore, navigate, and combat anti-Asian rhetoric.
