UIC Grad Student Tackles Anti-Asian Hate

Emily Etzkorn, a graduate assistant at the Asian American Resource and Cultural Center (AARCC) and MPH candidate in community health sciences in the UIC School of Public Health (SPH), was a recent guest on the WBEZ segment Reset with Sasha-Ann Simons.

Along with a panel of Asian American activists and community members from organizations such as the Chinese American Service League, the National Asian Pacific American Women’s Forum (NAPAWF), the Chicago Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights, and Asian Americans Advancing Justice (AAAJ) Chicago, Etzkorn discussed the recent anti-Asian attack on a student at Indiana University.
