This educational trip will take place on April 5-6, 2019. Participants will examine the topics of Asian American and Pacific Islander history, immigration, community engagement and activism, and the arts through meetings, lectures, and cultural tours.
This trip will focus on learning about AAPI communities and the impact they have on Chicago and the Midwest. We also hope to establish relationships with AAPI leaders involved in nonprofits, academics, government, and the arts.
Highlights of this year’s trip include AAPI neighborhood and cultural tours, meetings with Asian Americans Advancing Justice and the Japanese American Citizens League, and visits to the Rohingya Cultural Center and Cambodian American Museum and Killing Fields Memorial.
