The YKCC is hosting a week of action to address and discuss the deportation of Southeast Asians in the United States. This 3-day event will allow participants and community members to learn about the forces that target Southeast Asian communities to unjust deportations. This week starts off on Monday, April 22 with a teach in, followied by a story sharing on April 23, and concluding with a day of solidarity on April 24. By learning about the issue through historical resources, individual narratives and national campaigns, we will work to bridge the divide that is terrorizing communities of Southeast Asian descent.
