call for student panelists at the advancing justice conference

I recently heard from Kristen, a student at Loyola University Chicago, who is organizing a workshop at the upcoming Advancing Justice Conference, presented by the Asian American Center for Advancing Justice, happening September 27-28 in Chicago.

She's putting together a workshop on college student organizing, entitled "Seeing the Personal as Political: Asian American Identity and Campus Organizing for Solidarity," and is putting out a call for student panelists. Here's some more information:
We are looking for highly-qualified students to participate in a student panel for the 2012 Advancing Justice Conference who have demonstrated a strong commitment to empowering the APIA community on their college campuses through their involvement, activism, and advocacy. If selected for the panel, we ask that you speak about your personal experience with student organizing at your campus-- your challenges, successes, and strategies. We intend for the panel section of our workshop to be a space where we can exchange ideas and collectively brainstorm new tactics for organizing.
I'm sure there's more than a few of you out there who would be great for this panel. For further information about the panel, and to fill out the application, go here. And for more on the Advancing Justice Conference, go here.
