Blossoming of the Community-Campus-Student Partnership

BTS #2
“Break the Silence” had its second session on January 27th 2016 with a roomful of students.

A big thank-you to Thu Quach from AHS for co-coordinating this year’s speaker series and rounding together an amazing panel of speakers.

The great turn out of students are also due to the outreaching work done by APASD and AAADS.  Many of the new students heard about the speaker series through emails from APASD and AAADS faculty members.  Thank you!

The AAPIHRG student leadership team: Kelsey, Leslie, Carolyn, Lynn, and Belinda have been designing the weekly flyer, coordinating all the sessions and leading class discussion.

Thank you for the roles which you’ve played in this partnership!

Tomorrow will be the third session of the “Break the Silence” speaker series and will cover human trafficking among young South East Asian women in Oakland.  For more information, please refer to the attachment below.
