Fireside Chat on Disability Visibility: Discussion with Authors

Disability Visability

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 21, 2021  |  5:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.

As part of FWSF D&I Committee's 2nd Annual Signature Event, we have partnered with our book club and together we will host an interactive virtual fireside chat this fall. We look forward to welcoming you to a discussion regarding one of last year's best-selling books titled: Disability Visibility: First-Person Stories from the Twenty-First Century. This collection of essays reminds us that, one in five people in the United States lives with a disability. Some are visible, others less apparent-but all are underrepresented in media and popular culture.

FWSF Diversity and Inclusion Committee Presents: Anti-Asian Hate Awareness with guest speaker Assemblyman David Chiu

One of the many functions FWSF’s Diversity & Inclusion Committee performs is to convey important issues to our Board of Directors. Because you are a valued FWSF Member, we would like to share this presentation video recording with you as an added member-only benefit.

As you may be aware, hate crimes against Asian American Pacific Islanders have skyrocketed over the past year; and this is not altogether new but unfortunately, it’s been a silent symptom that has surged since the pandemic.

FWSF’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee, along with guest speaker Assemblyman David Chiu, have come together to heighten awareness and provide education on how to take action against anti-Asian hate, be better allies, and demonstrate the importance of supporting our AAPI colleagues, families, friends and communities.

The video is in the members-only section of the website under "Event Recording Library."


 

FWSF President's Diversity and Inclusion Statement

Dear FWSF Community:

Along with many of you, I’ve spent countless hours reflecting on the tragic events of recent days and weeks, wondering what I can do to further the causes of racial justice and peace. I believe that all of us are called to find the role that we can play in moving our society toward reconciliation.
