Chinese Immigration through the Decades: Arts, Panel, and Performances
Thursday, August 8, 2013
5:30 PM to 8:00 PM
Chinese Historical Society of America
965 Clay St.
San Francisco, CA 94108
As immigration reform rises as a national debate, our community reflects on its long history of migration. We came from different places and through different methods. To understand immigration reform, we, as a community, must understand the diversity of the stories of Chinese immigrants.
This community event includes a panel discussion by members and their immigration stories:
>>Eddie Wong, former Executive Director of Angel Island Immigration Station Foundation on paper migration,
>>Johannes Wijaya, a member of Tenant Worker Center at Chinese Progressive Association on his immigration story from Indonesia,
>>Wei Lee of ASPIRE- Asian Students Promoting Immigrant Rights through Education on personal experiences as undocumented young adult,
>>Janny Liang of ASPIRE sharing her reflections as an artist and intersectional experience as being undocumented student.
The event also features an art gallery and performances around immigration.
