Event description

Description

Crushing The Myth is a speaker series dedicated to Asian American topics.

The old “Model Minority” label is outdated and doesn’t reflect modern-day Asian America. So let’s CRUSH the myth, and talk about cultural issues that are important to our current generation.

- Each topic below will be narrated by a speaker through their own story and experience.
- Audiences are encouraged to meet & discuss the stories in between speakers, during the intermission.
