PDXWIT Presents: Debunking the Model Minority Myth: A Panel Discussion


Registration through Zoom https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_Eaemc3fVQtyr0D_4grtqjA is required to gain entry to this virtual event

Why are Asians labeled as Model Minorities? Join PDXWIT and our host Avenue Agency for a panel discussion where we’ll debunk the Model Minority Myth, a stereotypical idea that has caused confusion, misunderstanding, and harm to the Asian community for generations. Recent attacks on Asian Americans and Asians have sparked national discussions around Anti-Asian Racism, Asian Hate, and Asian Culture- but why did it take so long to come to light?

Moderated by Padmashree Koneti, this conversation will include panelists Zhou Fang, Hazel Valdez and Deana Solis. Panelists will share their personal and interpersonal experiences as Asian Americans and Asians in Portland and the U.S. Their collective lived experience gives us a glimpse of how communities can rally together and create a united voice that rejects the model minority myth.

We will have ASL interpretation and live closed captioning throughout.

Our events are inclusive. ALL people who support our mission are welcome.
