Organizer UCLA Asian American Studies Center & Institute on Inequality and Democracy

Organizer of Welcome Reception for 2017 UCLA Activist-In-Residence Fellows

For 50 years, the UCLA Asian American Studies Center has enriched and informed not only the UCLA community, but also an array of broader audiences and sectors in the state, the nation, and internationally about the long neglected history, rich cultural heritage, and present position of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in our society.


The Institute on Inequality and Democracy at UCLA Luskin advances radical democracy in an unequal world through research, critical thought, and alliances with social movements and racial justice activism. The work of the institute analyzes and transforms the divides and dispossessions of our times, in the university and in our cities, across global South and global North. Launched in February 2016, the Institute support research developed in partnership with social movements and community-based organizing.
