AT THE FOURTH ANNUAL conference of the Asian Pacific American Law Students Association (APALSA) last February panelists assessed the need for political activism among the Asian-American community and discussed strategies to create such a political movement.
Among the topics addressed were anti-Asian discrimination in current events, methods of translating professional success into political power for Asian Americans, and the history of Asian American activism. Daphne Kwok, executive director of the Asian Pacific American Institute for Congressional Studies, delivered the keynote address. She spoke about the lack of Asian Pacific American elected officials and offered tactics to boost their numbers.
