Saturday, June 23, 2012
1:30pm ET/10:30 am PT/7:30 am - doors open
2:00 pm ET/11:00 am PT/8:00 am HT - program begins


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.

Contact us at curtis@apaforprogress.org to see how you can be involved.

To host a party, all you need is an internet connection, a screen and comfortable seating.
