The Columbia Global Centers network stands in solidarity with the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community in the wake of recent hate incidents and tragic violence.

We have affirmed the University's commitment to a safe and inclusive environment for all community members, and have taken part in the University-wide efforts to continue to offer resources and support that enable us to develop actionable solutions to prevent future bigotry, hate, and discrimination.

In response to the growing call to action to support anti-racism movement and to foster an inclusive community, the following thematic discussion series, titled 'Stand in Solidarity: Combating Anti-AAPI Racism and Xenophobia', is designed to review the rising violence against the AAPI community, and examine the ongoing history of race discrimination. The Series aims to amplify AAPI voices, and help them, and all of us, to overcome the long-standing social injustice.

We welcome your participation in the upcoming webinars, in-person or online. If you need real-time interaction with our staff members or your peers, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
