In light of the surge of anti-Asian violence including the recent shootings that occurred in Atlanta, the Center for Multicultural Academic Excellence (CMAE), University Counseling Services (UCS), and Sexual Violence Prevention & Education (SVPE) are offering a space to validate and name the racialized nature of these violent incidences. During a time we're remote, we wanted to provide a space for students to collectively express and process their fear, pain, and any other emotions that have arisen as a response to the escalated acts of xenophobic, Sinophobic and misogynistic violence towards our East and South-East Asian community members during the pandemic.

Mariko Lin and Bango Gancinia from University Counseling Services will be facilitating this group for all students that identify within the Asian, Desi, & Pacific Islander (ADPI) community. To center community building, this space is open to any students living in the Eugene/Springfield area, so we invite students from Lane Community College and Bushnell University to join us as well.


This event is a part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) in April and Asian Pacific American Heritage Month (APAHM) in May. For other SAAM events, please lookout for the Teal SAAM 2021 banner on UO events and visit For APAHM events, please visit
