APEX Express is proud to announce we are the media sponsor of Vincent Chin 30: Standing Up Then and Now, A Bay Area Conversation.

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 Private Danny Chen and the continuing effects of 9/11, what can Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders do to stand up against racism and discrimination?

Join us on June 23rd, at the Ninth Street Independent Film Center in San Francisco for a lively discussion with leaders of local civil rights organizations (Vincent Pan – CAA, Ling Woo Liu – Korematsu Institute, Zahra Billoo – CAIR SFBA, Angela Chan – Asian Law Caucus) moderated by R.J. Lozada from APEX Express. Tickets are $10.

APEX Express contributor Tara Dorabji speaks with Dr. Udayakumar. He is the coordinator for the People’s Movement Against Nuclear Energy, and he is in India with the movement to stop the Koodankulam Nuclear Power Project. Residents living around the proposed project have launched massive protests, this includes hundreds of hunger strikes and sixty villages have opposed the project.

 

And, the First Voice Media Apprenticeship Program here at KPFA has extended its application deadline for Group 38. I’ll speak with Shwanika of Yabasta about the program and how you can apply.
