A $4,215 grant to Immigrant History Initiative awarded by Connecticut Humanities will provide tools and resources to parents in the state on talking about anti-Asian racism and Asian American identity.
The workshop will be geared toward parents in Connecticut who are looking for strategies and concrete tools to guide their children through thinking about Asian American identity and how to respond to anti-Asian racism, which has seen a significant uptick since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. The workshop will discuss the complex racial dynamics of Asian American identity, the history of anti-Asian racism and the current moment of resurgence, and trauma-informed practices and strategies for parents to utilize in discussing these important topics with their children.
