About this Event

For the first day of the "Power to the People": 50 Years of Bridging Research with Community Conference, we will welcome Jeff Chang (Author of We Gon’ Be Alright: Notes on Race and Resegregation and Vice President of Narrative, Arts & Culture at Race Forward) along with Taz Ahmed (UCLA Activist in Residence and Campaign Strategist at 18MR) for a special event, “The In-Betweens: Asian Americans and Solidarity In The Era of Resegregation” at the Japanese American National Museum’s Tateuchi Democracy Forum. Segments of Chang's We Gon’ Be Alright docuseries will be shown followed by a dialogue between Chang and Ahmed on these issues.

Conference is organized by the UCLA Asian American Studies Center, UCLA Asian American Studies Department, and the Asian Pacific Policy and Planning Council (A3PCON) and is co-sponsored by the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs, Institute of American Cultures, and Division of Social Sciences. Special thanks to the event's venue sponsor, the Japanese American National Museum.
