Keith Chan (he/him)
Thank you for this discussion. My question is: can Dr. Dong elaborate on the concept of acculturation and how it may play a role in current increase in violence towards Asian American older adults?
Can Dr. Chan give us his best advice on how to confront the model minority myth (brief effective response when someone uses this phrase) AND explain how dangerous it is
Yawen Li Ph.D
I wonder why there is so little research down on racism and health among Asian older adults in the past?
Thank you for this event. Open and maybe too broad question/ just searching for stories of experience. Perhaps this can contribute to Dr. Chan’s call for creating language of common cause and change: How do we as gerontologists balance advancing social justice for older adults and working with older adults that support white supremacist violence and/or colleagues unwilling or unable to come to terms with their white privilege/white fragility?
Could we discuss the apparent generational divide in addressing public safety for older Asian Americans who seem to prefer law enforcement intervention/police patrols v. younger Asians who seek community ambassadors/ally with BLM?
Dr. Dong, great talk! I am interested in your data about the racial disparity in government funding. Did your study just focus on social science area? What about the STEM area?
Ernest Gonzales, NYU (he/him series)
Both speakers did a great job reviewing the historical perspective of discrimination and both also acknowledged interactions with MLK/BLM movement. What lessons were learned through this allyship? What were some of the challenges as well?
How can allies to the AAPI community help to combat negative/positive stereotypes and tropes about the larger AAPI community in America?
Thank you Dr. Chan for these suggestions about finding new partners and discerning our language and how we approach social justice.
I am so grateful for WSU and the leaders for having this meeting. I have had my neighbors say to me anti-Asian comments especially in the last few years, and I want to learn how to diffuse this person (s) by asking maybe "why"? do you say that?
Thank you so much for these conversations, I feel grateful to have learned from you all today!
yes, same here, thank you
Thank you to all of the sponsors today. WSU SSW, RCMAR, AGESW and APISWEA.

Thank you for this meeting/ talk!
Thank you for this talk.
Let's invite older Asian Americans to participate!
Lauren Snedeker Rutgers School of Social Work (she/her/hers)
Thank you so much for this and I look forward to more opportunities
Great idea. We could have programing from perspectives of older Asian Americans and practitioners serving older Asian Americans on a panel.
Yes, Dr. Dong, I agree, the grassroots is so important.
Thank you for this great session! I must sign off for another meeting.
everyone should be muted unless speaking. thx.
I second Dr. Dong's idea of listening to community organizations that have historically served the Asian and Asian American community.
Signing off too. This has been a great session—thank you for organizing and disseminating. I am attending from Canada.
Thank you for this talk!
Ernest Gonzales, NYU (he/him series)
I have to sign off too. Thank you all for a great talk and ideas!
