Hope Over Hate | Inspiring Allyship for Asian American Communities

Wednesday, May 26, 2021, 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

“Just as hate can come from all colors and creeds, so can love. And helping those who are in need is just one way we can show our love, allyship and compassion for one another. It’s a valuable reminder that we can all be helpers.”

– Actor Daniel Dae Kim


Over the past year, more than 3,800 anti-Asian racist incidents were reported to Stop AAPI Hate, representing only a fraction of the discrimination faced by the Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) community. As we celebrate National AAPI Heritage Month this May, join Grace Farms Foundation and OCA Fairfield, part of a national organization advocating for AAPI communities, for an interdisciplinary conversation about how we can all work to build awareness around anti-Asian discrimination, identify ways to make a difference, and come together as a community to create lasting social change.

Our panel discussion, moderated by Michael Chen, General Partner and CEO at Chen & Associates and Vice Chair of the Board at Grace Farms Foundation, will explore how we can engage government, media, corporations, not-for-profits, and educational institutions in support of a more equitable environment for our AAPI neighbors.

Our panelists will include:

  • William Tong, Connecticut Attorney General
  • Jeffrey Flaks, President & CEO of Hartford HealthCare
  • Congressman Jim Himes (D-CT 4th District)
  • Pauline Brody, Vice President of OCA Fairfield
  • Professor Marilyn Ford, Quinnipiac University School of Law
