“Lived Experience of Racial Trauma in the AANHPI Community and What is Radical Healing?”
Wednesday, March 20, 2024
1 p.m. – 2 p.m. ET
Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islanders (AANHPIs) are often excluded from the discourse of racial trauma.

Also, the study examined how AANHPIs responded to racial trauma using a radical healing framework. Findings will support the recognition and awareness of racial trauma in AANHPIs. Learn more
