Professor Emily Ryo moderates panel with activists and leaders Connie Chung Joe, Russell Jeung
By Yulia Nakagome
“In Conversation: The Rise of Anti-Asian Hate in America,” a timely and insightful panel on the factors behind recent increases in hate against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, was hosted in late June by the USC Gould School of Law Alumni Association.
Gould Professor of Law and Sociology Emily Ryo moderated the panel, which included Professor Russell Jeung, professor of Asian American Studies at San Francisco State University and co-founder of the Stop AAPI Hate coalition, and Connie Chung Joe, CEO of Asian Americans Advancing Justice, a nationwide affiliation of five organizations advocating for civil and human rights of Asian Americans. Chung Joe and Jeung covered topics such as the legal implications of distinguishing between hate crimes and hate incidents.
The panel also touched on how immigration policy affects AAPI applicants, with Ryo noting her upcoming research focusing on removal rates of Chinese nationals compared to other groups. Ryo said the study found a significant increase in removal rates of Chinese nationals after the onset of the pandemic – a possible indication of how immigration judges may be reacting to public attitudes, she said.
Other topics discussed included patterns in data on hate incidents against specific AAPI groups such as women and seniors, and the continuum of anti-Asian hate over history.
