Introspection within the South Asian Community: How Our Experiences Can Shape Our Support of Black Lives

In the second of our anti-racism speaker series, we will explore biases within our community, and how they affect our response to racism against the Black community. South Asian panelists will talk about their experiences in dealing with racism toward Brown and Black communities in the United States, both externally and internally within the community. We hope this introspection will highlight ways in which we can support the Black community at this historical juncture.

Panelists:

Ru Bhatt - Partner at Major, Lindsey & Africa and Board Member of Act to Change, and actively involved in fundraising efforts for local and national LGBTQ+ and Asian American charity organizations both as a volunteer and Board member.

Rahul Dubey - Community activist who sheltered over 70 protestors in Washington, DC during the Black Lives Matter demonstrations after the killing of George Floyd

Moderator:

Snehal Massey - SABA-DC member and Associate Attorney, Turnbull, Nicholson & Sanders, P.A.

When: Tuesday, August 4th, 7pm-8pm
