Our friends at the East Coast Asian American Student Union contacted us with a heads-up: tomorrow is the deadline for regular student registration to their 2013 event, scheduled for Feb. 22-24 at Columbia University.
Among the guest speakers for this year’s conference:
- Norman Mineta, former U.S. Secretary of Transportation and Secretary of Commerce
- MSNBC anchor Richard Lui
- generationFIVE Program Director Mia Mingus, a physically disabled queer and transnational adoptee activist (seen above speaking at the Queer & Asian conference in Berkeley last year)
- Gregory Cendana, the youngest and first openly gay executive director of the Asian Pacific American Labor Alliance
This year’s workshops will include excerpts from the upcoming documentary Uploaded, the death of Private Danny Chen, the microaggressions phenomenon, and ways Asian-American and Pacific Islander families can support LGBTQ children, among other topics. (A full listing can be seen here.)
The deadline for late registration is February 14. For more information, visit the conference website or the ECAASU Facebook page.
