Description:

In this gathering, a group of activists, scholars, educators, and cultural producers will discuss different forms of interpersonal and intimate violence that crystallize across immigrant, queer of color, and/or transgender communities, including domestic violence, sexual assault, intimate partner violence, and childhood sexual abuse. Participants will tackle how racial, gender, and sexual violence interface with and are reproduced by entrenched structures of power, including the criminal justice system, legal advocacy and law enforcement, and the immigration industrial complex.


Roundtable participants, including mia mingus, Mimi Kim, Lee Ann Wang, and Edxie Betts, will also share alternatives to state and system-based solutions, particularly as community-oriented paradigms and critical responses are cultivated among and by those most by directly impacted by both state-authorized and intimate violence. Lastly, panelists will discuss what it means to be engaging this work at this particular moment in time—pedagogically and politically.

This round table discussion will be co-facilitated by Crystal Baik (Assistant Professor, Department of Ethnic Studies) and Ren-Yo Hwang (Doctoral Candidate, Department of Ethnic Studies).


Co-Sponsors: APSP, Departments of History, Ethnic Studies, Gender & Sexuality Studies, LGBT Resource Center, Women’s Resource Center, Office of the Associate Vice Chancellor for Diversity & Inclusion.
