Stronger Together: An AAPI Solidarity Reading

Monday, May 3, 5:30-7 p.m.

In response to recent heightened violence toward AAPI bodies and communities, ODU faculty and students come together for a reading of short poems and prose, either their original work, or by an AAPI writer. The event coincides with the start of AAPI Heritage Month and is presented by the College of Arts and Letters, the Office of Intercultural Relations, the Center for Faculty Development, the Office of Faculty Diversity and Retention, the Department of World Cultures and Languages, the ODU Asian Faculty Caucus and the MFA Creative Writing Program.
