Panel planned on Sept. 11 backlash, April 17

Representatives from three advocacy groups will present a panel discussion titled Backlash: Discrimination Facing the Asian Pacific American Community After 9/11 on Wednesday, April 17. The event will begin at 4:30 p.m. in 302 Frist.

The panelists will be Nicholas Rathod of South Asian American Leaders for Tomorrow, June Han of the National Asian Pacific American Legal Consortium and Joshua Salaam of the Council on American Islamic Relations. These three organizations have led calls for the government to further explore the hate crimes committed against South Asians and Muslims after Sept. 11, as well as to re-evaluate its own policies to prevent racial profiling and discrimination.

The event is presented as part of the Asian Pacific American Heritage Month celebration. For more information, contact Taufiq Rahim .
