Equity, Inclusion and COVID-19

As COVID-19 has swept across the United States, it has unmasked and amplified existing racial inequities.  Rampant fear and misinformation has provoked a wave of discrimination, harassment, and hate targeting those of Chinese and Asian descent.  The disease has also had a disproportionate toll on historically marginalized populations, including African Americans and Native Americans, due to unequal access to health care, residential segregation, poverty, and incarceration.  Join a conversation that will situate these developments within the long history of racism, exclusion, and scapegoating in the United States.  Panelists will discuss strategies to address marginalization and empower impacted communities.

Panelists:

  • Andy Kim, Congressman from New Jersey’s 3rd District
  • Beth Lew-Williams, Associate Professor of History, Princeton University
  • Keith Wailoo, Chair and Henry Putnam University Professor of History and Public Affairs
  • Helen Zia ’73, Activist and author
  • Aly Kassam-Remtulla, Associate Provost for International Affairs, Princeton University (moderator)

Space is limited, pre-registration is required.
A Zoom link will be emailed to those who register early the morning of the event.

Join the conversation on June 8, 2020 at 4 p.m. EST
