Centerpiece Conversation III: A Shared History of Struggle
In a year when George Floyd and Breonna Taylor’s deaths forced Americans to re-examine their relationships to BIPOC communities, we take a close look at the convergence and divergence, past and present, of the African American and Asian American struggles for civil rights.
A Shared History of Struggle
A dissection of the fights for African American and Asian American rights by

The third of our three-part series.
From the struggle for BIPOC rights to the impact of Covid on Chinatown and other ethnic communities to the rise in domestic violence as we shelter-in-place, this year has challenged our immigrant communities like no other. As part of our 2020 fundraiser Rebuilding the Dream, API Legal Outreach presents a series of three Centerpiece Conversations examining this year’s key issues driving our work and the world. These virtual events promise to be engaging, informative, and vital. Join us the first three Wednesdays in December at 6pm PT.
