APA Compass: The 1882 Project

The US Congress passed resolutions this summer formally apologizing for the 1882 Chinese Exclusion Act, which denied citzenship and basic rights to Asians for more than half a century.  Numerous Asian-American groups under the umbrella of the 1882 Project worked passionately for several years to attain this apology.  We learn from the organizers why the apology and education are essential for protecting civil rights for all Americans.

To Vote or Not to Vote ... Black!

Tune in TONIGHT at 7 pm (PST), tune to 90.7 FM in Portland or on-line, for The Eavesdrop, bringing you real conversations for real people.

Hosted by Nia and Paula, we will discuss the link between voting and race, traditionally & in this "post-racial" society.

We live in "the whitest city in America". Are votes by the Black community in Portland acknowledged & respected? Are Blacks expected to vote ... "Black"? What does that mean anyway?

Listen in, but better yet, JOIN us in the conversation by calling (503) 231-8187 and sharing YOUR views about the importance of exercising our voting rights!
