Asian American and Pacific Islander Civil Rights History: What Does it Mean for 21st Century Youth? From the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 to the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the sweats, tears and struggles of people of color were woven into the historic fabric of this country. However, todays youth are coming of age when many of these struggles seem like a chapter of the distant past. What do these past struggles mean for todays youth and young people? What is the impact of the past on the future? This interactive and thought-provoking workshop aims to engage Asian American and Pacific Islander youth as the future generation of leaders for a candid discussion on how they can get involved and shape civil rights agendas.

Civil Rights at the Intersections of Gender Identity, Sexuality, Immigration and Race This workshop will explore intersections between lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) struggles and the broader Asian American and Pacific Islander civil rights agenda, with a goal of promoting greater inclusion of LGBT issues by Asian American and Pacific Islander allied organizations and advocates. Speakers will cover issues such as the parallels between the efforts to ban marriage between same-sex partners and earlier laws prohibiting interracial marriage, the similar struggles of undocumented immigrants and transgender individuals, and the efforts to raise the concerns of same-sex binational couples in both the marriage equality and immigration reform movements. An allied organization will also discuss its challenges to support LGBT issues in a community that is highly religious.

Tufts Asian American Studies Teach-In 3/11/2012 WHAT IS ASIAN AMERICAN STUDIES?

"An interdisciplinary field that examines Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, their history, communities, and contemporary issues. It studies the experiences of immigrants and succeeding generations within the changing context of US society, politics and culture and illuminates our understanding of race relations, gender roles, labor, policy-making, and citizenship." -UCLA Asian American Studies http://www.asianam.ucla.edu/faqundergrad.html#AAS_UCLA

Currently, faculty and student working groups on the umbrella program on comparative race/ethnic studies are drafting on a curriculum proposal that includes an Asian American Studies minor. This has been the fruit of a long struggle for an ethnic studies program at Tufts, beginning with the Africana Studies movement that started 40 years ago as well as with the push for Asian American Studies that began in the early 1990s.

There is no Asian American studies program at Tufts, although such a program exists at other comparable top universities in the US.

Tufts Asian American Alliance and Pan-African Alliance are holding an ASIAN AMERICAN STUDIES TEACH-IN aiming to educate ourselves and the attendees on: -What is Asian American Studies? -What is this history of the struggle for Asian American Studies at Tufts? -Why is this relevant to us? -What does an Asian American Studies curriculum look like? -Where do we go from here?

Guy Tang in Daily DestinAsian (Episode 8) Asian-American social movement discuss stereotypes With the media,society and culture that surrounds us every day, it does always seem hard not to get influenced by them. Learning to find your own identity is one of the hardest thing for many Asian-Americans because there arent any strong non-stereotyped role models in the American media. So many of us turn to the internet for Asian pop culture to define our idenities..We have yet to have a loud enough voice to change the way the media depicts us out to be.. Here in this very personal episode reveals the story of where DestinAsian is rooted and how everyone can reached their DestinAsian.. DestinAsian is about the journey into finding self-love and showcasing the strong sexuality and confidence that has been hidden by the media of Asian men...

In this conversation 3 Asian-Americans discuss a few topics regarding the concerns of racial violence and how something like racial slurs can can turn into severe devastation .By Embracing yourself and having a voice to speak up is the only way we can be heard..Its about damn time.!

Human Rights Frameworks for Asian American and Pacific Islander Advocacy In the past several years, activists, funders and policymakers in search of more effective perspectives and tools to create positive social change in their communities have increasing turned to human rights tools. These tools such as fact-finding, litigation, organizing and advocacy in reference to international human rights law and norms, had previously been employed by United States-based activists working in international contexts, but had not been applied closer to home in United States communities and jurisdictions. A number of successful examples have emerged of organizations using these tools in an effective effort to reduce poverty, promote workers rights and environmental justice, abolish the death penalty and end discrimination. Many questions remain, however, about the effectiveness of human rights frameworks as communications and organizing strategies. Furthermore, the role of these strategies for Asian American and Pacific Islander advocacy groups may play out differently than it does for other types of organizations. On the one hand, immigrant constituencies and advocates from certain countries may bring to the United States a certain fluency in human rights frameworks and a perspective of social justice that is more interconnected and international. On the other hand, human rights concepts can be alienating to immigrants from Communist regimes in Asia. The workshop would provide an opportunity for progressive Asian American and Pacific Islander organizations to grapple with the implications of the emerging human rights movement in the United States for the social change we seek to achieve.
