Listening Session with a Focus on Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islanders’ Issues

May 25, 2021, Noon ET

Dear NAREA members and friends,
Please join other NAREA members for an open conversation on anti-Asian racism and concerns affecting AAPI (Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander) scholars within the association and beyond. This will be the first of a series of biannual listening sessions hosted by NAREA leadership. The purpose of these sessions is to provide a safe space to reflect on experiences and share ideas for how NAREA can be a better professional home for all members, particularly for members from underrepresented and historically underserved groups. All NAREA members are invited to attend, including those who don’t identify as AAPI.

This first session will focus on NAREA’s AAPI scholars and is motivated by the recent surge in acts of violence towards AAPI communities over the past year. These acts are part of a longer history of violence and discrimination against AAPI communities, to which AAPI scholars in agricultural and resource economics are not immune. You can read NAREA’s statement against AAPI hate and discrimination here.

You can register for the listening session here. In addition, please use this Google Form if you would like to provide anonymous input. We encourage you to share your thoughts, whether or not you can attend the listening session.
