Asians, Asian Americans, and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) across Ohio have experienced uncertainty and threats to their health, safety, and financial security, all the while processing the resurgence of anti-Asian racism and discrimination nationally and internationally.

Join OPAWL for the final event in our statewide virtual event series “{in}VISIBLE in OHIO,” an interactive panel of Asian/AAPI community members who will share their experiences of living and working in the time of COVID-19. Our panel discussion will feature small business owners, healthcare workers, policy makers, and community advocates. Each panelist has their own stories to share and observations of how the pandemic impacts our communities.
