This week onConnect the Dots, we’ll explore how the representation of Asian American and Pacific Islanders in the media, and lack thereof, can impact the mental health of the people in these communities.  To learn more, we spoke with Dr. Kevin Nadal, Distinguished Professor at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice at the City University of New York, and the author of “Filipino American Psychology” and “That's So Gay! Micro-aggressions and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Community, and Valerie Soe, a Chinese American experimental filmmaker and Asian American Studies professor at San Francisco State University, who has produced experimental films in an effort to dismantle racist stereotypes.  Subscribe to Connect the Dots on the Audacy app or wherever you get your podcasts.
