In 1982, Vincent Chin was the victim of a hate crime murder in Detroit. Thirty years later, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders continue to face discrimination and bullying. In light of recent tragedies like the extreme hazing and subsequent death of Pvt. Danny Chen and the continuing effects of 9/11, what can Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders do to stand up against racism and discrimination?
Please join us for a one-hour panel discussion with leading voices from the nonprofit, legal and judicial communities as we address these timely issues. Viewing parties have been organized in more than 20 cities and individuals can tweet in questions at #VC30. Check here to see if your city has a hosted Google Hangout location! If you’re at Penn and would like to go to the Asian Arts Initiative viewing party as a group, contact Shiella.
