South Hadley—Dr. Miliann Kang and Dr. C.N. Le, two highly-esteemed Asian-American professors at UMass Amherst, will speak at Loomis Village on Tuesday, May 24, 2022 at 2 p.m. in the Loomis Village auditorium. As faculty of the Asian & Asian American Studies Certificate at UMass, Dr. Kang and Dr. Le will present on issues that Asian-Americans face both nationally and locally.
The presentation is organized by The Loomis Communities’ Resident Inclusion & Social Justice Committee, and will feature a presentation and dialogue with attendees.
According to organizers, “The goal of the presentation is to understand the impact of White racism on Asian American lives and learn to become better allies. By gaining a greater awareness of racism’s impact on the lives of BIPOC and LGBTQ+ Americans, we are in a better position to truly promote inclusion and social justice.”
C.N. Le is a Senior Lecturer II in the Sociology Department and Director of the Asian & Asian American Studies Certificate Program at UMass Amherst. Dr. Kang is affiliated faculty in Sociology and part of the Asian & Asian American Studies Certificate.
