Summary In this webinar, speakers address the harms of the “China Initiative” and the government’s racial profiling of scientists and researchers of Asian descent. These leaders share their insights on topics including policy and advocacy engagement, access to available legal resources, and building narratives to lift up the voices of impacted people and combat xenophobia.
Excerpt  “We need to make sure that our community is educated so that they know what their rights are” – John C. Yang
Curator Notes  This is the fourth webinar in a four-part series tackling the human and scientific costs of the “China Initiative.” The “China Initiative” is an effort by the U.S. Department of Justice to counter Chinese national security threats and to protect U.S. trade secrets and technology. Under this initiative, the DOJ has pursued enforcement actions against Chinese companies and individual researchers and scientists with ties to China.
