Vincent Who? at the NAPABA conference

Hey folks. The National Asian Pacific American Bar Association is having their annual in convention in Los Angeles this week. They've actually asked us to screen parts of "Vincent Who?" as their plenary session at Friday lunch. (It's a last-minute addition and we're still working out some of the details.) Anyway, stop by and say hello if you can. Here is the press release that NAPABA just sent out.

It all started with a simple goal: to remember Vincent Chin.

In 2007, on the 25th anniversary of his death, Asian Pacific Americans for Progress organized a series of fourteen townhalls around the country to discuss the impact of his life and legacy. We gathered many of the leading civil rights leaders in our community to ask how far had we come and how far we had yet to go. From those discussions came our award-winning documentary, "Vincent Who?", which has now toured to over 130 colleges, libraries and law firms around the country.

Joseph Ileto Remembered

Affter Vincent Chin, the murder of Filipino American postal worker Joseph Ileto is arguably the most high-profile hate crime committed against an Asian American. On August 10, 1999, Buford Furrow, a self professed white supremacist, went on a rampage at the North Valley Jewish Community Center where he shot and injured five individuals.
