Panelists:

2020 and 2021 has been a battle for Asian Americans. A battle for their lives in a pandemic. A battle against racial bias and attacks. A battle for respect as essential workers, business owners, and many more. Most of all, more than ever, it has been a struggle to be seen and heard as Americans.  Anti-Asian violence has increased significantly since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic.


In the words of George Takei, Star Trek actor and civil rights activist, "Asian American hate is as old as American history and overnight, this country was swept up by suspicion and fear and naked, outright hatred.”  ACC Georgia Chapter has invited a panel of esteemed lawyers to have a conversation about the current situation of anti-Asian hate and what we can do to counter it.  Please join us for this dynamic and engaging conversation.
