Hosted by the NYU Center for Multicultural Education & Programs. Co-sponsored by the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU.

As a follow-up to last semester’s “The Construction of A/PA Identity: A Community Dialogue for Student Leaders”, Asian/Pacific American students are invited to join this intra-communal dialogue about the construction of A/PA as a category of community and group identity. How is it useful? Where does it fall apart? What does it mean to be part of a community?

Participants will have the opportunity to engage in group dialogue and self-reflection to think through the questions around community, accountability, solidarity, and the challenges of organizing within an A/PA context. Participants are encouraged to read 8 Steps Toward Building Indispensability (Instead of Disposability) Culture by Kai Cheng Thom (which appeared in Everyday Feminism) before the conversation. Non-NYU students are welcome.
