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

Events took place around the country on June 23rd, 2012 in memory and in reflection of Vincent Chin. A national online townhall, coordinated by Asian Pacific Americans for Progress, was watched by viewers around the country: http://www.apaforprogress.org/vc30

6/23/2012: Asian Pacific Americans for Progress (SF Bay Area) and the Center for Asian American Media co-hosted the San Francisco event. APEX Express contributor R.J.

Korematsu Institute, and Zahra Billoo, executive director of the Council on American Islamic Relations, San Francisco Bay Area Chapter. The panel delves into hate crimes, the short comings of recent legislation, and how each group is working together to change the culture of law and order.
