The Government’s Role in Combating AAPI Hate (Mar. 30, 6pm ET)
We are deeply troubled by the steep rise in hate crimes and acts of discrimination targeting the AAPI community during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, especially the recent violent attacks against AAPI elders in Northern California. Given that we live and work in the Nation’s Capitol, we have a keen interest in the role the federal government can and should play in combating such discrimination, the intersection between federal and state laws, and what we in DC can do to help. Please join us on Tuesday, March 30 at 6pm Eastern for an important and timely discussion, hosted by APABA-DC and co-sponsored by KABA-DC, with two esteemed former government officials:
- Jessie K. Liu, Partner at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP, former U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, and a former Deputy Assistant Attorney General in the U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division
Roy L. Austin, Jr., Vice President for Civil Rights & Deputy General Counsel at Facebook and a former Deputy Assistant Attorney General in the U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division
Also co-sponsored by several other affiliate organizations.
