APABA is proud to present its annual Asian Pacific American Heritage Month Event: A Panel Discussion on Bullying, Hazing, and Discrimination. Discrimination takes many forms. Bullying, hazing, and similar behavior are frequently dismissed as playground antics or taunting. But oftentimes, this behavior is rooted in hatred and discrimination and can result in physical and mental harm. A recent study reveals that Asian students are bullied more than any other ethnic group. Our panel examines why bullying of minorities and in particular Asians is so prevalent, the undertones of racism, mental effects, and remedies.

Panelists:
Seth Levy, General Counsel, It Gets Better Project
Hon. David S. Wesley, Los Angeles Superior Court
Sarita G. Guerrero, N.C.S.P.
Jennifer Snyder, Los Angeles District Attorney

Opening remarks by Congresswoman Judy Chu

Reception to follow panel. This event is FREE with RSVP by May 25, 2012 (contactapaba@gmail.com).
