UCLA Asian American Studies and the Chinese American Studies Endowment believe it's important for Chinese Americans to participate fully in American society.

Welcome to Our Community Roundtable!
- How can Chinese Americans fully participate - politically and socially - in today's society?
- Can Chinese Americans make a difference in future U.S.-China relations?
- What social, cultural and political resources do we have to create a better American society for all?

UCLA Asian American Studies Center, together with the Chinese
American Studies Endowment, bring you this program which brings
together individuals in politics, education, and the law to discuss how we,
as Asian Americans, participate in a global society. Our speakers will help
to address the i"ssues of the day" including civil rights and the law,
Chinese American political organizing and participation, and the future
role of Chinese Americans and U.S.-China relations.

Mike Eng, California State Assemblyperson representing the 49th District; Dr. Tritia Toyota, adjunct assistant professor at UCLA; Dr. David Yoo, Claremont College and director-designate of UCLA Asian
