Description

Please join Asian Americans Advancing Justice - Orange County and an exciting panel featuring Dr. Linda Trinh Vo, from the University of California, Irvine, Mary Anne Foo, from the Orange County Asian Pacific Islander Community Alliance and Karin Wang, from Asian Americans Advancing Justice-LA.

The panel will discuss the diversity of the Asian American and Pacific Islander population in Orange County, including the rapid demographic shifts and different paths of migration which have now established Orange County as the 3rd largest Asian American population in the United States. The panel will also touch upon the varying needs of these rapidly growing communities, and the major challenges they face, including those stemming from biases and misconceptions associated with the "model minority myth"

1.0 hour of MCLE credit (Elimination of Bias) will be provided for this activity. Asian Americans Advancing Justice-LA is a State Bar of California approved MCLE provider.
