From Our Partners at Facing History & Ourselves


As America continues to confront acts of violence towards Asian Americans, we invite you to join Facing History and activist and author Helen Zia as we explore a history that our country has for too long ignored. Nearly 40 years ago, Ms. Zia became the spokesperson for the campaign seeking justice for Vincent Chin, whose racist murder galvanized the Asian American movement. Together with Maureen Tatsuko Loughnane, Executive Director of Facing History and Ourselves Chicago, Ms. Zia will explore historical and contemporary manifestations of anti-Asian hate and its intersection with white supremacy, as well as the often overlooked stories of resistance, perseverance, and pride within the Asian American Pacific Islander community.
