With a politicized pandemic sweeping throug h the country and a former President calling it the Chinese Virus\, the ri se of attacks and hate against AAPIs is not surprising.\n\nCan naming a vi rus after an innocent ethnic group cause the outbreak of an epidemic of ha te? Or is it something hidden deeper within American society? The film tak es a close examination of xenophobia and racism against AAPIs caused by th e COVID-19 pandemic.\n\nThe Race Epidemic is a significant film of our tim es as innocent AAPIs are being attacked and murdered on the streets.  It ’s time to act.  We can no longer be the silent minority. Our voice wil l not be silenced.\n\n<em>This screening is in partnership with Asian Paci fic Leadership Foundation and is a presentation of JANM’s National Cente r for the Preservation of Democracy. </em>\n\n<strong><a href="https://96 44p.blackbaudhosting.com/9644p/tickets?tab=2&amp\;txobjid=a4e7e23b-732d-44 7d-b9c8-46fc7f86ed37" target="_blank">RSVP HERE</a></strong>\n\n<em>$20 Su ggested Donation</em> SUMMARY:Screening and Q&amp\;A —The Race Epidemic: Resurgence of the Yell ow Peril URL:/en/events/2021/10/14/screening-and-qampa-the-race-epidemic-resurgen/ END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
