Episode 10: We Need to Talk About AAPI Inclusion

The panel series, “We Need To Talk: Conversations on Racism for a More Resilient Las Vegas,” will host an in-person and livestreamed discussion on Wed., Nov. 3 at 2:30 p.m. The series is sponsored by the UNLV Libraries and the Greenspun College of Urban Affairs. The Asian-American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community represents one of the fastest growing populations in Las Vegas and Southern Nevada. Yet, Asian-Americans have long encountered prejudice and discrimination with their experiences often going unnoticed and their accomplishments dismissed. This panel discussion will cover why understanding and learning more about AAPI history, achievements and aspirations is vital to creating a more inclusive society. Topics will include defining inclusivity, the AAPI community’s positive impact in Nevada, and ways to combat anti-Asian hate sentiments.
