Anti-Asian meme battle (in English)

Come and meet PAC at UVA on March 16 during the week against racism. Have a chat with the members of the organization, create your own micro-aggression meme, or join one of the meme battles. PAC provides a safe space where questions and experiences related to Asian identity or racism can be shared (anonymously too).

PAC (Pan Asian CollectiveExternal link) strives for full representation of Asians in the Netherlands within culture and media. Among other things, the organization connects fresh perspectives and storytelling in theatre, campaigns and cultural programs. In addition to organising events and meetings for the Asian community, the organization is also conducting research to map Asian Racism in the Netherlands.
