“#stopAsianhate” with Byron Yee
Byron Yee is a 5th-generation Chinese-American. He graduated from Western Washington University in 2009 with a double major in Theatre Arts and Business Administration. From 2009-2011, Byron served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Senegal, Africa. At the end of his Peace Corps service, he was inspired to travel to China to learn Chinese and find his roots. He ended up staying in China for four years while he became fluent in Mandarin Chinese and did successfully locate both the paternal and maternal villages of his ancestors.

Byron now works in Seattle for Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center for the Coronavirus Prevention Network (CoVPN). He is on a team of people managing finances for the Phase III clinical trials of several major COVID-19 vaccines. Aside from writing poetry, Byron enjoys yoga, tai chi, and hiking with his wife and two young boys.

#stopAsianhate will be a conversation that engages our senses, connecting awareness to creative thinking and inspiration. Byron Yee shares his story about connecting with his roots as a 5th generation Chinese American through a powerful keynote, poetry, and conversation with our local students and community members. Join us to learn more about how we can all use our best skills to #stopAsianhate and build community and belonging.
