See & Do: 7th Annual New York City Asian American Student Conference

The 7th Annual New York City Asian American Student Conference will be held at New York University this Saturday, April 27th. This is a great opportunity to learn about Asian American issues, network with community leaders, and meet up-and-coming Asian American performers.

This year’s workshops and panels include topics on immigration, civil justice through the lens of hip hop, politics of Gangnam Style, racial appropriation, and more.

Details on some of the many great speakers:

Our keynote speaker this year is award-winning journalist and activist Helen Zia, who has covered social and political movements of the Asian American community for the past thirty years. Her range of work is deeply rooted in civil rights advocacy, as noted in her involvement in the landmark anti-Asian violence Vincent Chin case of the 1980s. Other speakers and performers in attendance this year will include CNN-featured comedienne Jen Kwok, “Yellowface” playwright David Henry Hwang, Youtube performer Joseph Vincent, NYC-based comedian and writer Hari Kondabolu, and many other prominent and influential Asian Americans.

Don’t miss out! Registration is free. More information on nycaasc.com.
