On February 4, 2021, we presented the “Rebuilding America’s Promise: The Chinese American Perspective” webinar. In this timely conversation, two former Presidentially appointed officials offer their insights into potential changes under President Biden. Listen as they share perspectives on how a Biden administration may confront increased racism and attacks against Chinese Americans and Asian Americans, find breakthroughs with China despite the negative rhetoric around China, and the monumental task of healing divisions among Americans that have been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
