Immigration, COVID-19, and the US Economy Webinar with Alfredo Corchado Jiménez: 6/25 at Noon

Posted on June 21, 2020 | Filed under Archive

The International Education office in the Allegheny Gateway invites you to a free Zoom Webinar: Immigration, COVID-19, and the US Economy on June 25, noon to 1 pm EST, with key speaker Alfredo Corchado Jiménez. This event is co-sponsored by the World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh and the Columbus Council on World Affairs.

Corchado is an award-winning Mexican-American journalist, specializing in Mexican-American affairs, mainly at the border (he spoke on campus at Allegheny in October 2019). His role as Mexico Border Correspondent and chief of the Dallas Morning News provides him with valuable insight on the impact of COVID-19 on human migration, immigration politics, and the hidden role of immigrants in US society that many don’t see. In a time where COVID-19 has practically halted human migration, Corchado and the Columbus Council will discuss how COVID-related border policies and the toll that COVID-19 has placed on the country’s food packing industry go hand in hand, and provide a deeper look at this issue, the impact on our food supply, and what it actually means to be an essential worker.

Addressing Anti-Asian Racism & Building Solidarity During COVID-19: 5/28

Posted on May 27, 2020 | Filed under Archive

International Education in the Allegheny Gateway invites you to join BurghMeetsWorld for a free community conversation on addressing anti-Asian racism and building solidarity during COVID-19 on Thursday, May 28, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Register to join the event at this link. The COVID-19 crisis has intensified the racism and xenophobia that have always pervaded our society and systems. Since the outbreak of the pandemic, we have witnessed heightened anti-Asian racism, hate, and violence across the world. Black, LatinX, indigenous, and newcomer communities have been impacted disproportionately by the pandemic, forced to bear higher health and economic costs. How do we bridge the divide between and within our communities to stand in collective solidarity, both during and beyond the pandemic? BurghMeetsWorld is an outlet for people to share their experiences and connect with each other in Pittsburgh and across the world. This participatory, interactive event will serve as a safe space for communities to come together to discuss their experiences and concerns around racism and xenophobia, to think collectively through the ways we can stand in solidarity, and take action to combat racial injustices.
