ABOUT OUR EVENT

Please join us for APSC’s Fall Fundraiser on Thursday, October 17 at the Oakland Asian Cultural Center. We are excited to be bringing you an event celebrating our 17th Anniversary, victories of the past year, those who've made a difference in our community, and amazing live entertainment.

This year, the reception features tasty hors d’oeuvres by Chef Tu David Phu, Top Chef Alumni and SF Chronicle Rising Star Chef. Chef Tu David Phu is a first generation Vietnamese-American from Oakland with a rich culinary background. With inspiration from his mother’s Vietnamese cooking, and as an alumni of highly regarded kitchens (such as: Acquerello, Daniel, and Chez Panisse), his food reflects a wide range of cooking cultures.

Entertainment will be headlined by Ann One, a Korean-American soul singer/songwriter/producer from Los Angeles, with two critically acclaimed albums in Korea. She has worked with Anderson .Paak, Freddie Gibbs, CHOPS and the Mountain Brothers, Bambu De Pistola, and Ruby Ibarra. She is also a vocal & music production instructor at Musicians Institute. Ann One will be performing alongside DJ Phatrick and bassist Chucky Kim.

Founded in 2002, Asian Prisoner Support Committee (APSC) is a grassroots organization dedicated to providing support to Asian and Pacific Islander prisoners and educating the broader community about the growing number of APIs in the US being imprisoned, detained, or deported.

AWARDEES

This year, APSC honors two wonderful partners:

Nathaniel Tan has been a volunteer with Asian Prisoner Support Committee for over five years. During his time with APSC he co-facilitates the ROOTS program at San Quentin State Prison and organizes APSC's anti-deportation campaigns. He has helped organize the #KeepPJHome campaign, #FreeMariaLuna campaign & #PardonRefugees campaign.

Center for Empowering Refugees and Immigrants (CERI) is a community based organization in Oakland with the mission to improve the social, emotional, psychological, economic, and physical health of refugees and immigrants from Southeast Asia affected by war, torture, genocide and other forms of extreme trauma. CERI was instrumental in organizing an intergenerational campaign to stop the deportations of Oakland Khmer community members in the Spring of 2019.
