Microaggressions and the API Community (3/30/2017)
Microaggressions are subtle, denigrating messages delivered to people from marginalized groups, oftentimes by well-meaning people who are unaware of the underlying messages they are sending.  For instance, people from the Asian Pacific Islander (API) community are often asked “Where are you from? No, really, where were you born?” or told, “You speak such good English.” These statements imply that members of the API community are perpetual foreigners and are not “true” Americans. These everyday insults, slights, and indignities can result in negative emotional, psychological, and physical outcomes.

This webinar will define microaggressions, and cover both racial microaggressions and microaggressions toward LGBTQ folks.  Special attention will be paid to the everyday prejudice and discrimination faced by API folks in the current climate of “othering” immigrants.
