In its third #NotYourAsianSidekick Google Hangouts On Air, 18MillionRising will explore the ways multiracial identity impacts AAPI organizing and movement building. Panelists will discuss historical and contemporary successes and challenges related to the ways multiraciality disrupts and complicates racism and the racial construct.
We will also delve into what it means to be AAPI and multiracial; and how the unique experiences of multiracial AAPIs impacts interactions and coalitions between people of color.
