Nearly one in three American students is bullied, but for Asian
American students, the numbers are even more staggering: more than
half. A report published just last year in the AAPI Nexus revealed that
54% of Asian American teenagers are victims of bullying in the
classroom. These findings were from a 2009 survey conducted by the U.S.
Justice and Education departments that interviewed 6,500 students aged
12 to 18 throughout the nation, who reported to being targets of
taunting, exclusion, and even physical violence.
This is a free event that will begin at 6:00 p.m. Tuesday, May 29, at the Community Room of the Asian Pacific American Legal Center. Food and drinks will be provided. The program will start promptly at 6:30 p.m. and a reception will follow.
As we anticipate a full house, please RSVP at your earliest convenience
and at the latest by May 25, 2012 to email@example.com.
