ONLINE–Centering Senior Care and Aging During COVID-19
November 14, 2021 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pmFree
ONLINE–Join an online panel talk (in-person with simultaneous live stream broadcast) focusing on elders’ experiences and challenges during this global pandemic amidst the rise of anti-Asian hate in ethnic neighborhoods across the U.S. In the second year of the COVID-19 pandemic, we faced a racial justice reckoning as anti-Asian hate violence escalated across the nation. We witnessed elders in Oakland Chinatown and in other neighborhoods become vulnerable targets of racially motivated violence. While violence against elders and racism against Asians are not new phenomena, there is a renewed urgency to train our attention and ask: How might we center our elders’ voices in the broader conversations and concerns with community safety, adequate direct services, affordable housing, and other issues? Hear the opinions of elders, community experts, and service providers in tackling this question and find out how you can support local efforts to care for our elders. Sunday, November 14, 2021, at 1:00 pm Oakland Asian Cultural Center with live streaming on OACC’s YouTube Live RSVP here. This project is supported by a Humanities for All Project grant.
