In the past year, the nation has seen a substantial increase in hate crimes against members of the Asian community. These attacks have ranged from micro-aggressions, verbal attacks, physical confrontations and death. These attacks have greatly undermined the sense of security among the Asian-American community.
Roseville HRIEC Commissioner Grace Lee will moderate a discussion among business owner of Tii Cup Huyen-Vy “Vivi” Nguyen, Roseville Area School District school board member Rose Chu, and Ku Gay Nahpay, Youth Career Development Counselor at Karen Organization of Minnesota. The participants will discuss their experiences and respond to questions posed by Lee.
