"Power to the People": 50 Years of Bridging Research with Community Conference

About this Event

Join the UCLA Asian American Studies Center (AASC) and Asian American Studies Department (AASD) as we celebrate 50 years of AAPI research, teaching, social justice education and movement building at UCLA. This conference, co-organized with the Asian Pacific Planning and Policy Council (AP3CON), will bring together diverse and intergenerational communities to appreciate the legacies, genealogies, and futures of Asian American and Pacific Island Studies. With community engagement at the heart of the field, we strive to strengthen the connection between the university, community-based organizations and public decision-makers. Conference panels are designed to encourage dialogue about current research needs and possibilities for collaboration. Students and community members are encouraged to attend to engage with important issues and discover ways to get involved with current movements and organizing.
