We are excited to announce the 29th Asian/Pacific Islander Issues Conference (APIICON) happening at UC Berkeley on Saturday, March 7th. Since 1990, APIICON has been a critical space for students, professors, and community members to dialogue about the pressing issues within the Asian/Pacific Islander community and to generate shared solutions. The ultimate goal of APIICON is to educate, empower, and organize our community.
Where: Hearst Field Annex
When: March 7th, 2020 check in at 9:30AM - 10:00PM
This year’s theme is Breakdown and Rebuild: Creating Sustainable Foundations.
As Asian Pacific Islanders (APIs) living in the United States, our people have endured generations of discrimination and prejudice in an attempt to destroy and disempower our communities. With this year’s theme, we are inviting attendees to breakdown our understandings of the API experience - unraveling the systemic barriers that deny us our hxstory and access to resources - while exploring opportunities to rebuild our visions for community rooted in our collective liberation. We ask attendees to imagine what it would be like to create the sustainable foundations that will ensure our healing and flourishing for generations to come.
