Talk Description

Photo of Loan DaoOn October 21, Dr. Loan Dao, will present "Here to Stay: API Activists in the Immigrant Rights Movement."

This talk aims to capture political identify formation that leads to political participation for undocumented and DACA AAPI youth. It considers how their status as undocumented or DACA helped them form a collective identity, and in turn become active in the immigrant rights movement. Through strategic storytelling, they shape the narrative framing in both the immigrant rights and in AAPI communities.
