The Atlanta Shootings: One Year Later Lecture & Community Vigil
AADS Brown Bag: The Atlanta Shootings: One Year Later
When: March 16, 2022, 3-4 PM EST
Speaker: Dr. Anna Storti
"As we continue to witness devastating acts of violence against Asian women, let us gather and confront the historical patterns at play. Violence against Asian people-both before and during the COVID-19 pandemic-reflect a longer, more imperial history. How has US military occupation contributed to the dehumanization of Asian people? Why is it that Asian women remain subject to the deadly effects of sexualization? How do the shootings intertwine with a longer history of US empire and US evangelicalism? To inform our organizing after Atlanta, what can we learn from efforts to decriminalize sex work and how does this work align with anti-carceral movements for abolition?"
