KEYNOTE SPEAKER: PARAG MEHTA – API COMMUNITY LIAISON, OBAMA-BIDEN TRANSITION TEAM

As the U.S. attempts to negotiate its gravest financial crisis in almost 75 years, Asian American communities must ensure that our concerns are represented in public debates around lightning rod issues such as education, immigration, social services, and fiscal reform. Against this backdrop, how can Asian Americans unify our voices? What are the barriers to effective coalition building and advancement, and how do we develop sustainable alliances and strategies to challenge those barriers?

Topics will include: Asian American Studies Curricula in k-12 & Higher Education • Community Empowerment in a New Financial Reality • Sustaining Arts & Culture • New Media & Community Mobilization.

Speakers will include: Sewell Chan (The New York Times), Ken Chen (The Asian American Writers’ Workshop), Joanna Eng (Idealist.org), Chung-Wah Hong (NY Immigration Coalition), Vanessa Leung & Choua Vue (CACF), Glenn Magpantay (AALDEF), Sunita Mukhi (SUNY Stony Brook), Amardeep Singh (Sikh Coalition), and many more.
