When news of a novel coronavirus arrived in the United States in early January, xenophobia was not far behind. Since the outbreak of COVID-19, reports of racist attacks against Asian Americans increased. As the number of confirmed cases exploded in America, racial disparities in health outcomes became starker. The hardest hit are often Black, Latinx, and Indigenous communities—manyof whomare essential workers. Beforeand throughout the pandemic, Black and Brown people across the nation have continued to be murderedat harrowing and unacceptable rates by the police. Join For Freedoms, GYOPO, LACMA, and Stop DiscriminAsian (SDA) for a conversation about the pandemic’s impact on the movement for racial justice, and the country’s long standing health, economic, and racial inequities.
The trauma of racialviolence reaches further than any single individual, especially when the news cycle about Black deaths is unavoidable. Panelists will discuss the way violent images of Black suffering have been mediated, circulated, and weaponized; the reinvention of one’s relationship to those images; the utilization of those images without re-traumatization; and the power of art to address anxiety and other harms of racism.*
As a native Texan, I have witnessed firsthand the discrimination that immigrants face in the United States. I have heard from friends who visited detention centers, and from lawyers representing those detained. I have heard the stories of those who are separated from their families, and read transcripts from underfunded courtrooms operating far beyond capacity. It is devastating. That all of this occurs in the name of “security” and “safety” is the greatest farce of all. — Molly Gochman
DO YOU KNOW WHERE THE CHILDREN ARE (DYKWTCA) is a call to action and exhibition of over 100 unique works of art by 100+ leading visual artists that is organized by the artists and activists Mary Ellen Carroll and Lucas Michael. Each work incorporates, or represents an actual account (in whole or in part) from a child who was separated from their family and detained by the U.S. government. This text may be in the native language of the child or a translation into English. The accounts are taken from the interviews that were conducted by the Flores investigators that included legal, medical and mental health experts who visited the detention facilities six months ago in June of 2019. Upon witnessing the deplorable, inhumane, and illegal conditions they found the children in, they decided it was necessary to act upon their findings. They went public.*
