Virtual Annual Conference

April 15-April 17, 2021

Any language would be insufficient to describe what happened to us and our communities in 2020. For the first time in our 35-year history, PANAAWTM had to cancel our annual gathering due to a pandemic. We now experience a global pandemic as a new “normal” while entering a new stage of political and social movements. At a critical time like this, we invite you to attend our first virtual PANAAWTM Annual Meeting. Together, we look back on our paths and look forward to the future of PANAAWTM. PANAAWTM has produced critical knowledge of Asian and Asian American feminist theology, built transnational and transgenerational community, and strengthened sisterhood. Join us for sharing memories and stories of radical imagining, fierce surviving, and collective caring.
