Join author Paula Yoo and writer Philip Chung for a conversation around the legacy of Vincent Chin on the  6th Annual National Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Day Against Bullying and Hate . Yoo will discuss and sign her newest book,  Rising from the Ashes: Los Angeles 1992 , and her 2021 book,  From a Whisper to a Rallying Cry , which tells the story of the Vincent Chin murder and trial.

May 18 is the birthday of Vincent Chin, an Asian American man who was murdered in a hate crime in 1982. Four decades later, AAPI youth face bullying in school,online, and in public spaces. To honor Vincent Chin’s legacy and to commemorate Asian American Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) Heritage Month in May, Act To Change invites you to stand up to bullying, hate, and racism.
