CAIR Chicago Co-Sponsors National Townhall on Hate Crimes


WHO: Asian Pacific Americans for Progress

WHAT: National Townhall on Hate Crimes

WHY:
In June 1982, Chinese American Vincent Chin was killed in Detroit by two unemployed white autoworkers who had been recently been laid off. This hate crime, motivated by anti-Japanese sentiments, served as a rallying cry for the Asian American community and is often considered the beginning of a pan-Asian American movement.

Twenty five years later, Asian Pacific Americans for Progress and local partners around the country look back in time and assess where we are now. With recent high-profile attacks on Asian Americans in New York, Michigan and Wisconsin, APAP is organizing a series of events throughout the nation around the anniversary of Vincent's murder. Each event will include a special screening of the Academy-Award nominated documentary, "Who Killed Vincent Chin?" and panels with local community leaders.
Co-Sponsored By: the Jane Addams Hull-House Museum (JAHHM), Japanese American Citizens League, Organization of Chinese Americans JAHHM, 800 South Halsted, Chicago Bill Yoshino (Midwest Director, JACL), Diana Lin (VP, Asian American Institute), Myron Quon (Legal Director, Asian American Institute), Rima Kapitan (Staff Attorney with Council on American-Islamic Relations)
