APSA’s 28th annual Asian Pacific American Awareness Conference: “Reimagine. Rebuild. Reclaim.”


The conference will be held at the Student Center at UC Irvine on Saturday, January 26, 2013 from 8:30am-5pm. Individual tickets are being sold for $5. To register and to pay online, click here.

This year’s theme is “Reimagine. Rebuild. Reclaim.” This year we explore the importance of:

  • REIMAGINING. We advocate for a more just and equitable society. What does that society look like? What assumptions must be challenged for us to work towards this vision?
  • REBUILDING. After reimagining this ideal community, we must rebuild through action. How does this action take place today? What can we learn from their experience and struggles?
  • RECLAIMING. Asian Pacific-Islander American is a political term that connects our unique communities through commonality of struggle and allows us to pool resources to advocate with and for each other. How are our identities negotiated internally and through social structures, and how can we reclaim the term APIA while staying true to ourselves?
