Please join Asian Pacific Americans for Progress and our local partners for a nationwide Google Hangout* with leading civil rights leaders from around the country.
Saturday, June 23, 20122 pm EST/11 am PST/8 am HST Viewing parties across the country
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 fact, more than half of Asian Americans report being bullied in the high school class room, the highest of any racial group. In light of recent tragedies like the suicide 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?
On the 30th anniversary of Vincent's death, 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.
