The current political climate has exacerbated ideological polarization, and has triggered heated debate between friends and family. You are invited to attend an informal conversation on creating lines of communication with friends, peers and family on topics of race, gender and politics with a particular focus on the linguistic, cultural and generational barriers that can stymy conversation with loved ones in the Asian American community. The conversation will be facilitated by Jenn Fang, founder and editor of Reappropriate.co, the longest-running Asian American feminism blog.
Dinner will be provided! Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any access or dietary needs.
Please join the AACC for dinner and stories on Friday 4/28! Four amazing seniors from the AACC community will be sharing their personal stories, reflections, and anecdotes from their time at Yale. Dinner will be catered by Kumo. We hope to see you there!
Meet the Seniors:
Sukriti Mohan (Smo) is a senior in Silliman who is sticking around Yale for another year after graduation to get her MPH. She loves sushi, running, and museums, and there's nothing that bothers her more than the term "special snowflake." In her own words, her aesthetic is "athleisure." Unfortunately, in others' words, her aesthetic is "trash." She loves the AACC, so she's really excited about this event!
Edward Dong is a senior lit major from California. Things he will miss when he graduates: the AACC, PWG, and wild sweet orange. Things he will not miss: all of the hair salons, Bass Cafe, the stats department, coldness, snow, feeling cold, walking through snow, etc.
Jan Aquino is a senior in Davenport majoring in Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology. His favorite things are Snapchat, Filipino food, and telling people that he's not premed. He considers his involvement with the Asian American community through Kasama: the Filipino Club, AASA, and the AACC an integral part of his four years at Yale.
Mimi Pham is a senior in Morse College (the best college) majoring in economics and history. She is originally from the beautiful land of Tampa, FL and next year she will be living in the DC area. In her free time, she can be found eating, shopping, napping, and talking to people while ignoring her homework. Currently, she serves as Head Peer Liaison for the AACC, and in the past she has worked on AASA and ViSA boards. The AACC community has been a wonderful addition to her time at Yale and she is so excited to see you all!

Since 2011, half of Syria's population has been internally and externally displaced by the war (what Syrians call an "azmeh" or "crisis"). The UNHCR counts the number of forcibly displaced peoples is at 65.3 million (as of 2015), with the registered Syrian refugee population at around 6 million. The disastrous 3.65 billion dollar EU-Turkey deal, signed in March 2016, has left thousands stranded in over-capacity refugee "reception centers" on the Greek Islands, including women with their children (and unaccompanied minors) who made the voyage through Turkey into Greece to meet re-unite with partners in Western Europe. In October, Syrian American journalist Maytha Alhassan traveled to the Greek Island of Chios and Athens to work with women's centers specializing in care for pregnant women and women who experienced sexual or gender-based violence. In addition to giving testimony to what Alhassen has termed "engaged witness" of her experience working with refugees in Greece, she will be covering the "volunteer eco-system" that has emerged in Greece and in the local Greek anarchists response to the influx of refugees and migrants. Both of which have created new institutions and imaginaries of community in response to the failure of large NGOs and government agencies to address the "refugee crisis" humanely.
Maytha Alhassen recently defended her dissertation To Tell What the Eye Beholds: A Post-1945 Transnational History of Afro-Arab 'Solidarity Politics' from USC's American Studies & Ethnicity department and is current a TED Resident. She has appeared as a guest co-host and digital producer on Al Jazeera English's "The Stream" and written for CNN, Huffington Post, Mic, CounterPunch, and other outlets.

Yick Chong Lam is working with a start up company in its research and development phase. The founder of this company and Yick's friend, Xiaojie Huo, graduated from NYU and is a social entrepreneur in childhood education in China. They are looking for native English speakers that would be interested in joining the team as tutors, communicating and mentoring Chinese children between the ages of 5 and 13 via WeChat video chats. WeChat is a social media platform for communication. Through English communication, Chinese children would be better prepared to develop as leaders in this global society. The time and talking contents for each tutoring session is flexible and can be worked out in more detail later. The pay is $50 per hour for the tutors.
