Asian & Allies Teachers Affinity Group (AATA)

Michelle Lo, Meilin Lu

The focus of AATA is to provide a safe and welcoming space to discuss and think critically, creativity, and responsibly about our experiences, identities, and positionalities in ways that embody equity and anti-racist teaching as we think about our future classrooms. AATA centers issues revolving Asian/Asian American teachers and welcomes attendees to ask questions, provide resources, and support one another through monthly meetings centered around a specific theme. Sample themes include: anti-racist teaching, immigrant & non-immigrant experiences, mental health, parents, STEM vs. humanities elitism, and the model minority myth. AATA hopes to pair dinner and academic articles to guide productive conversations surrounding Asian/Asian American/Ally issues.
