What it means to show up in Asian restaurants for racial justice

June 22 – 1 p.m. ET / 10 a.m. PT

Earlier this year, amid the rise in anti-Asian violence, chef and restaurant owner Irene Li published a medium article entitled 8 Absolutely Achievable Ways To Stand Up For Racial Justice … If You’re White And Own An Asian Restaurant! The open essay sparked supportive responses from industry peers and guests – including a number of white restaurant owners who wanted to move the conversation forward.

Join Li on Tuesday, June 22nd at 1 p.m. ET together with the boss Jamie Bissonnette the Boston restaurants Toro, Coppa, and Little Donkey; Nancy Cushman, Co-owner of a number of restaurants with her husband, including O Ya and Hojoko; and cook Tracy Chang von Pagu for an honest conversation about the complexity of Asian representation, representation and appropriation in restaurants. We’ll explore what anti-racism should look like in the restaurant industry, ways to restore attention and resources to non-white people, and more.

Hosted by Eater and Vox Media’s Employee resource group As | Am, the conversation will be an open dialogue, encouraging audience participation and questions. It all happens via zoom, so Join Now to secure a spot and get a zoom link to join before the event.

In the meantime, we encourage you to read Li’s article and consider sponsoring a local Asian restaurant near you.
