Dr. Jennifer Ratcliff, former members of her Postive Intergroup Relations Lab, Tyra Andrus, Folake Olowu, and Jessica Capellupa, and collaborator Dr. Audrey Miller, recently published a research article entitled, “When Potential Allies and Targets Do (and Do Not) Confront Anti-Asian Prejudice: Reactions to Blatant and Subtle Prejudice During the COVID-19 Pandemic”, in the Journal of Interpersonal Violence

Across two studies, this research examined barriers to the confrontation of anti-Asian prejudice duing the COVID-19 Pandemic. Findings underscored the need for interventions to increase detection of all forms of anti-Asian prejudice and to provide would-be confronters with effective confrontation tools.
