With the Asian population in the United States now surpassing 15 million, Asian Americans can no longer be viewed as silent and passive. We have become more and more visible in academia, politics, media, and popular entertainment.
But how will we use our rising influence in a timing of rising crises, such as economic tensions, environmental disasters, anti-immigrant attacks, political conflicts, and unending wars?
How can we continue to resist the “model minority” stereotype and empower the voices of working-class and still marginalized Asian American communities?
How can we build critical connections to other communities of color, international solidarity efforts, and progressive movements?
This 2-day conference will bring together leadings scholars, community organizers, artists, and students from the Midwest and across the nation to discuss the past, present, and future of Asian American movement activism.
