Anti-Asian bias is not new. It has a long history in America, since before its founding, but recent events have brought a spotlight on our community. The speakers will each share their lived experience of anti-Asian bias, in the streets and in the courtroom. We bring decades of activism, advocacy, and organizing work to educate the LGBTQ+ legal community on how to stand in solidarity with the Asian community, how to be more inclusive of Queer and Trans Asian lawyers and legal professionals, how excluding Asian perspectives in the ongoing fights against our community endangers our objectives for LGBTQ+ equality, and a call to create more spaces for intersectional organizing, whether that’s in the LGBTQ+, Asian, legal, or corporate communities.
