In the third episode of our ForumNation podcast, David Biemesderfer interviews Patrica Eng. She discusses the disturbing rise of hate and violence against AAPI communities due to the COVID-19 pandemic and how philanthropy can respond; how Asian Americans are often portrayed as the “model minority” while fear and racism are always simmering just below the surface; and how she views the current moment as being a potential “reset button” for philanthropy to think differently and bigger.
AAPIP is turning 30 at a time when a new virus has forced an unprecedented level of physical and social isolation while simultaneously punctuating how interconnected we are as a society – indeed as a global community. It has also re-introduced a new wave of xenophobia directed against Asians in this country, a familiar, but no less disturbing phenomenon and underscores the need for an organization like AAPIP.
