On June 23, 1982, Vincent Chin died in Detroit, the victim of a hate crime murder. Thirty years later, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders continue to face discrimination and bullying. In light of recent tragedies like the extreme hazing of Pvt. Danny Chen and the continuing effects of 9/11, what can Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders and allies do to stand up against racism and discrimination?

Please join us for a one-hour panel discussion via a live, national-wide Google Hangout on Air with leading voices from the nonprofit and legal communities as we address these timely issues.

Viewing parties have been organized in more than 30 cities and individuals can tweet in questions at #VC30.
