Civic Leadership Form – What are the challenges facing Asian Americans?
Asians have been in the US from the very beginning in 1849. In 1965, the Immigration and Nationality Act was a direct result of Civil Rights movements lead by Martin Luther King Jr. Most of us would not be here if it weren’t for the Civil Rights movement of the late ‘50s and early ‘60s influencing the passage of the Immigration Reforms of 1965. We need to learn to work with the other minorities to form a coalition to influence the political system.
Dance Performance: Inspiring dance performance from the top Indian American dancers at Abhinaya Dance Company will present “I Have A Dream”, the life of Martin Luther King to all attendees.
