Remembering Vincent Chin today

email received today:

The Vincent Chin case truly showed me how voices have been silenced and continue to be silenced in this country. I am a senior in college and today in class was the first time I have heard of this story. I am studying to be an elementary school teacher and learning about this case really got me thinking about how I will teach young students about silenced voices.

"More than 20 of our national AAPI organizations have joined this debate, representing the voices of nearly four in every five Asian American voters who support stricter gun laws. Although we did not prevail last night, we will not stop until we do."

Essay: Finding the Courage to Cross the Street Again After Orlando - NBC News

My essay for NBC Asian America, remembering Vincent Chin, Joseph Ileto, Stockton School Shooting, and Orlando.
I remember the courage it took to take my children to Chinese summer camp the next morning. What if our visibly minority summer camp was targeted next? Is going to Chinese summer camp an act of bravery or an act of foolishness?
