If Anything is Possible: A Blueprint for Change

The Asian American community has made valiant efforts to respond to racist views and negligent media portrayals. Is outrage the answer? We’ll bring key people together to speak about their experiences responding to pivotal incidents in the community. We’ll facilitate dialogue that brings about innovative ways to effectively act together.

This roundtable discussion is part of a new MoCA quarterly series, which aims to tackle current and specific topics that impact the Asian American community in a 'nuts and bolts' style. Rather than simply elucidating issues, the objective is a proactive discussion aimed at creating a blueprint for change.
Fellow participants include Andrew Hsiao (WBAI, New Press), Albert Lim (Fallout Central) Beau Sia (Def Jam Poet), Carmen Van Kerckhove (NewDemographic.com), Minya Oh aka Miss Info (HOT 97 FM), and moderator Jeff Yang (SFGate's "Asian Pop"). I'm pretty excited for this discussion. Heck, I'm just looking forward to being the same room with these folks. See you there! And please say hello.
