LET’S RISE TOGETHER AGAINST HATE
The Legacy of Vincent Chin: Resistance, Remembrance, Renew
Watch this intergenerational discussion on what the Vincent Chin case from 39 years ago means for Asian American activism today—and in the future.
Panel featured activist and author HELEN ZIA; attorney and University of Michigan A/PIA studies lecturer ROLAND HWANG; and attorney JIM SHIMOURA. Zia, Hwang, and Shimoura led the campaign for justice for Vincent Chin, and they continue to champion equality and civil rights protections for Asian Americans.
In their deep and inspiring conversation, the panelists addressed how the climate of anti-Asian bias during the early 1980s compares to today; the importance of pursuing multiple paths to racial justice; the significance of commemorating Vincent Chin’s death on Juneteenth; and how to carry on Vincent Chin’s legacy.
Thank you speakers, entertainers, friends, partners, and allies for coming together in solidarity against AAPI hate on Memorial Day! In 20 cities across the nation, we stood in unity and said, “No More”. We know this is just the beginning. We know we must continue to be seen and be heard.
We must stay engaged with each other, our communities, locally and nationally, and continue to make change.
