WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH
When Chang started out as a young journalist, she would dress in masculine clothing to “look as tough as the guys” and shy away from reporting on the AAPI community for fear of being pigeon-holed. Today, she embraces her identities as a woman, mother of three sons, wife, volunteer, Jew by Choice and Asian American, and empowers women to blend their talents with their passions and celebrate their authentic selves.
AAPI HERITAGE MONTH
The AAPI identity includes over 50 ethnic or language groups, but there’s one thing they have in common: A feeling of “otherism” that includes being asked “but, where are you really from?” even if their family has been in the U.S. for generations. This “otherism” was weaponized during the pandemic, with anti-Asian hate crimes rising 169% in 15 American cities during the first three months of 2021 alone. Bring Chang to your campus to lead a thought-provoking conversation that increases understanding and amplifies allyship.
