APEX Express

APEX Express – February 16, 2006

As our rights are under attack, we hear how twenty-five years ago testimonies of hundreds of Japanese Americans – internees of American concentration camps – led to the passage of the Civil Liberties Act of 1988. Donald Young talks about his film that documents this landmark period; a documentary that will be shown at the Day of Remembrance.

And, as Pacific Islander students experience some of the highest drop-out rates in the East Bay Area there’s also a growing number of Pacific Islander youth organizers. Hear how they help promote a recent study – with surprising statistics about some Island communities – as part of the AYPAL youth organizing group.

Plus tix to give away to Dhamaal’s event along with music, calendar and more.
