Committee to Address Anti-Asian Bias and Racism (CAABR)

The Committee to Address Anti-Asian Bias and Racism was formed to address the growing concerns and fears about the racism experienced by our Asian and Asian American colleagues at Mount Sinai. Our goal is to engage stakeholders from across the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and the Mount Sinai Health System to develop and implement strategies to address and combat anti-Asian bias and racism.

Mount Sinai recognizes May as Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

Join the Asian Resource Network (ARN), the Asian Pacific Medical Students Association (APAMSA), the Committee Against Anti-Bias and Racism (CAABR), and the South Asian Medical Students Association (SAMSA) as we celebrate AAPI Heritage Month with our cafeterias which are featuring Asian inspired dishes and informational flyers throughout the month. We encourage everyone to stop by, tantalize your palate, and learn more about AAPI heritage.

This month, we honor the resiliency of every Asian American and Pacific Islander who has made a difference to the fabric our country and within our Mount Sinai community. We invite you to join our efforts to increase awareness around diversity, equity, and inclusion - especially in the face of hate crimes towards our AAPI community, racial injustice, and the global pandemic which continues to disproportionately affect communities of color. Our stories are woven together and united we can make impactful change.  We are stronger together.
