Event Details

* Where and how do Asian Americans place themselves today--in the neighborhood, in politics, and around social activism?

* How can Asian Americans better utilize the “power of place” in their own communities and in local, state, and national politics toward economic and social justice for all?

* In today’s climate of xenophobia and anti-immigrant bashing, what expanded role can colleges and community organizations, working together with media, play to educate civil society?

The 2012 AAARI annual conference brings together urban sociologists, student activists, and community professionals in one place to discuss current issues that impact and affect Asian Americans. These issues include: The Future of Ethnic Neighborhoods from New York to Los Angeles; Comparative Approaches to Look at Gentrification in Boston, Philadelphia and New York; Putting Asian Americans on the Map and Redistricting; Student Activism, Occupy Wall Street and the Danny Chen case; Standing Up for the Dream Act and Immigration; and more!
