Celebrating Asian Grandmothers
May 20 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
In another senseless act of Anti-Asian violence, a white man in San Francisco attacked Xiao Zhen Xie, a 75-year-old Asian grandmother. Ms. Xiao used a wooden board to fight back against her attacker after being punched. Her attacker was bloodied and left on a stretcher while Ms. Xiao walked away. Ms. Xiao is donating almost $1 million dollars, collected from a GoFundMe set up by her grandson, to charities combating hate against Asian Americans.
Please join us in celebrating the power and grace of Asian grandmothers like Ms. Xiao, with videos and performances from grandmothers and their grandchildren. The performances will be followed by a discussion panel on the experiences of generations of Asian American Women.
The virtual event will be taking place on May 20th from 5:30-7:30 PT and is organized by the Stanford Center for Asian Health Research and Education (CARE) and the Stanford Center for Biomedical Ethics Medicine & the Muse Program.
