Organizing Meeting: Asian/Asian American Issues at OSU

In light of recent incidents of discrimination towards Asian and Asian Pacific Islander American students on campus, we hope to open a dialogue around APIA issues at OSU and in the broader community.

We will be having an organizing meeting on Tuesday, May 8 at 6pm to begin the conversation. Location to follow.


This will be a first step to share and listen to others’ experiences and concerns, where we can discuss how we can work together to address these as well as ways we can create social change on campus and build wider connections with the Columbus area community.

Please announce this to any and all who may be interested in attending.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Kim McKee (mckee.517@buckeyemail.osu.edu) or Annabelle Estera (annabelle.estera@gmail.com)

SYG march to task force meeting. The purpose of the march was to raise awareness about issues of bias at OSU. 

Interview with Rebecca Nelson about the Bias and Response Team at OSU. BART exists for tracking hate crimes and bias incidents and helping victims get connected with the resources they need. 

“I know what the message is. It’s a shot across the bow. There are people here who do not want you here …who do not feel that you belong here. But you have a message that you ought to send to them. And that is you are going to stand your ground.”
