A.C.T. Up: Promoting Activism in API Community

Asian/Pacific Islanders (APIs) have a long and rich history of struggle and activism that is very often overlooked and goes unaccredited. I plan to demystify popular misconceptions and stereotypes by planning a conference and related workshops centered on API activism. I want to bring awareness to the unique stories of prominent API leaders, past and present, in order to debunk the Model Minority Myth that still affects our communities today. I hope to create a training ground to empower our API communities to become active participants in our fight for equity.

*As of October 27th. 2013

  • Collaborating with Chinese Progressive Association (CPA) and Stanford to plan a conference that will focus on grassroots organization, and advocacy for the API community.

*More information on this project will be updated as soon as possible.
