Study seeking biracial, multiracial, and mixed heritage individuals

One of our regular readers is doing a study. Amanda writes:

My name is Amanda Rivera and I am a doctoral student of clinical-community psychology at the University of La Verne. I am currently working on my dissertation, under the supervision of Christopher Liang, Ph.D.

Please consider participating in my study, which is focused on the unique experiences of biracial and multiracial individuals. Participants will be entered in a raffle to win ONE OF FOUR $50 gift certificates to Target or Barnes and Noble. To participate in the study, individuals must be 18 years or older. The study should take approximately 30 to 40 minutes to complete and your responses will be kept confidential.

If you would like to participate in this study or would like more information please visit the following website link:

Thank you so much! Your participation will help in developing a greater understanding of experiences among the biracial and multiracial population.

In the event that you have any questions or concerns about this study, you may contact me at amanda.rivera@laverne.edu


AAPI House Party

On May 31st, Asian Pacific Americans for Progress (apaforprogress.org), the national network of progressive Asian Americans and allies, is hosting a nation-wide conference call with Konrad Ng, the Chinese American brother-in-law of President Obama. It will be a great chance to hear from someone so close to the President and to learn how the President might approach our community.

It would be great if you could help spread the word. All the details are on our website, but basically, it can just be a dozen friends or so, gathering for a potluck and then calling in and listening to Konrad. We’ll also have another guest or two. After the call, we want the parties to all talk about the issues they think matter, not just on a national level, but also locally. We’ll then record all these thoughts and share them with the Obama administration. It will be a chance to have our collective voice heard.

Jobs for Change

Change.org has launched a new initiative – Jobs for Change:

Our goal is to spark a nationwide movement toward careers in the common good – including nonprofit, government, and social enterprise jobs. We’re currently building a huge database of social change jobs with our partners and have just hired a team of career advisors who will be blogging every day to provide guidance on finding and developing a career in social change.
