Hosted by Dartmouth Asian Pacific American Alumni Association (DAPAAA) and Stop Repeating History and co-sponsored by Duke Asian Alumni Alliance (DAAA), this panel during Asian Pacific American Heritage Month will focus on the resurgence of anti-Asian hate/violence and the opportunity it presents for AAPIs to help change systemic racism in America. An underlying theme for the event is “to those whom much has been given, much is expected”; what can Ivy Leaguers do to help make it so? Featuring panelists Neal Katyal (Dartmouth B.A., Yale J.D.), Former Acting Solicitor General of the United States, who has argued more Supreme Court cases in U.S. history than has any minority attorney; Gary Locke (Yale B.A., Boston University J.D.), First Chinese American governor in U.S. history, U.S. Secretary of Commerce, Ambassador to China during the Obama administration; and Helen Zia (Princeton B.A.), activist, author, journalist, and key figure in the Asian American movement. This panel is moderated by the president of the Asian American Journalists Association, journalist Michelle Ye Hee Lee of The Washington Post.
