The panel will also discuss how media is complicit in perpetuating Asian stereotypes, including how some journalists portray hate crimes against the Asian American community. Panelists include filmmaker Diane Paragas (Yellow Rose), Publicist David Ninh (Kino Lorber), and Merrill Sterritt (Cinereach).
