Diversity in Practice: Responding to the Rise in Anti-Asian Discrimination

MoFo Perspectives Podcast

20 May 2021

As part of MoFo’s effort to commemorate Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, our Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer Natalie Kernisant welcomes California Assemblyman David Chiu and MoFo Litigation Partner Bonnie Lau to the podcast to take a hard look at the recent rise in anti-Asian discrimination and how misinformation, fear, and racist political rhetoric tied to COVID-19’s origins in China have fueled hate and violence against the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities across the country. They also explore America’s long history of anti-Asian hate and discrimination, the relationship between the AAPI community and other marginalized communities in this country, the need for broad based, community-led public safety initiatives, and how these issues affect members of the AAPI community in the professional space.
