When: Thursday, June 07 2018 @ 07:00 PM - - 09:00PM
Where: JAMsj
535 North Fifth Street
San Jose, CA 95112
Description: From the Chinese Exclusion Act to the Muslim Ban: Lessons learned for defending civil liberties under attack today

Featured speaker: Bill Ong Hing with a panel discussion & a light reception afterward

Called “aliens ineligible for citizenship” and even “enemy non-aliens,” Asian immigrants have been made foreigners in our own country, while Mexican and Muslim immigrants are criminalized as “illegal” and “terrorists.” We are treated as “Alien Americans” rather than who we really are.

Free and open to the public
