DUE March 29th!

In 2001, members of the Association of Asian American Yale Alumni (AAAYA), along with family and friends established the Tina E. Yeh Community Service Fellowship in memory of Tina E. Yeh ’83. Managed by the Asian Pacific Fund, this fellowship program encourages Yale undergraduates and recent graduates to become involved in community service through summer internships. Our goal is to nurture the leadership development of students and lend support to nonprofit organizations around the country that provide critical services to low-income and disenfranchised communities. 

Student applications are now open here, or at: bit.ly/TinaYeh2019. Please share the word!

What's Your Story Asia America?
As we celebrate 2019 Pan Asian American Heritage Month at Yale, it is safe to say the term 'Asian American' means a lot of things to a lot of people. In this special workshop led by Abdul-Rehman Malik, award winning journalist, educator and cultural organizer we will explore not only what it means to be Asian American and a U.S. citizen but how we can find the threads which bind us together. Facebook event and more information here
JASU Curry Night
JASU Presents: Curry Night!

Sunday, March 3rd from 5:00 pm to 7:30 pm 
@ AACC, with two time slots to eat
PLEASE pre-register at https://goo.gl/qbDrkB

There is nothing to warm you up on a cold winter night like Japanese curry served over steaming hot rice! A little spicy, a little sweet, rich and made with potatoes, carrots, and onions, this dish has become one of Japan’s most popular since being introduced in the 1800s. Today, Japanese curry has as many flavors as there are households. Adding tonkatsu - fried pork cutlet - is also extremely popular and adds even more deliciousness to curry.

Not only for many Japanese citizens, but also for the Japanese diaspora around the world (especially in the States), curry has become one of those dishes that reminds them not only of their heritage but also their family. Many Japanese Americans have grown up eating curry, tying them to their cultural homeland regardless of where they live. We hope that you and your friends will be able to join us for a small taste into the many unique flavors that JASU has to offer.
China’s Surveillance and Mass Incarceration of Uyghurs Panel
The Chinese government has detained an estimated one million Uyghurs in Xinjiang. There are reports of widespread human rights violations and police surveillance in the region, which are aimed at repressing the freedom and culture of the Uyghur population. The panelists will discuss the history of Xinjiang and the present situation, and brainstorm strategies for possible human rights interventions going forward.

Panelists:

Bethany Allen-Ebrahimian is an award winning journalist who has written extensively on China at large. Her writing has appeared in The New York Times, Foreign Policy, The Washington Post, and The Atlantic. She has also appeared as a commentator on CNN International, C-SPAN, BBC's The World, NPR, PRI, Al Jazeera, ABC Radio, and Deutsche Welle.

Omer Kanat helped found the Uyghur Human Rights Project (UHRP) in 2003, as well as the World Uyghur Congress (WUC) in 2004. He has served as Vice President of the WUC since 2006, and Chairman of the WUC Executive Committee since 2017. He was also WUC’s International Outreach Coordinator from 2014 to 2016. From 1999 to 2009, Kanat was Senior Editor at Radio Free Asia’s Uyghur Service. Prior to his work at Radio Free Asia, he was Editor and later Senior Editor at Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty’s Tajik Service.

Sean Roberts is an Associate Professor at George Washington University's Elliot School of International Affairs. Sean is a cultural anthropologist with extensive applied experience in international development work. Having conducted ethnographic fieldwork among the Uyghur people of Central Asia and China during the 1990s, he has published extensively on this community in scholarly journals and collected volumes. In addition, he produced a documentary film on the community entitled Waiting for Uighurstan (1996). From 1998 to 2000 and 2002 to 2006, he worked at the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) in Central Asia on democracy and governance programs.

Seeking Bilingual Students
The Yale Interpretation Network (YIN) is seeking bilingual students and employees interested in making a difference in the New Haven area. Non-English speakers often face language barriers when seeking services like mental health care and legal assistance. Many organizations would like to accommodate this community but often lack the resources to do so.
 
YIN provides high-quality, pro-bono interpretation and translation services to bridge the gap between non-English-speaking community members and social services. Time commitment can be anywhere from once a year to once a week, and you can make a significant impact in our community. Please complete this form if you’re interested in participating:

The 2019 AAU Campus Sexual Climate Survey
If you are a Yale student—graduate, undergraduate, or professional—you would have received an invitation in your email from President Salovey asking you to take part in the 2019 Campus Sexual Climate Survey. This confidential survey asks about students' perceptions and experiences of sexual misconduct, campus resources and support, and bystander intervention. The results will help guide Yale’s strategies for addressing sexual misconduct. The strength of those findings, though, will depend on you!  Please, check your inbox and fill out the survey.  (The links are unique, so each person can find the email in their own inbox.) Yale will report on the results in Fall 2019.  For more details about the survey and Yale’s resources, please see smr.yale.edu.

“120 Years” Film Screening & Panel Discussion
120 Years” Film Screening & Panel Discussion on Wed., March 6th at 6:00-7:30pm at the Whitney Humanities Center, 53 Wall St New Haven, CT co-sponsored by the Joseph Slifka Center for Jewish Life and the Afro-American Cultural Center at Yale.
 
“120 YEARS" tells the story of Scott Lewis, a citizen of New Haven, CT who was sentenced to life in prison for a crime he never committed. Over the course of two decades, Lewis built his case from behind bars, poring over legal texts, writing to attorneys, and holding out hope that one day he might walk free. This story traces the ramifications of his wrongful conviction on a family that lost 20 precious years together, on a community shaken by corruption, and on an exonerated man desperately making up for lost time. This film offers a glimpse into the lives of the individuals our criminal justice system leaves behind—and the extraordinary fight it takes to reverse their fates.
The panel discussion will feature the following:
  • Scott Lewis, Subject of Film
  • Stefon Morant, Co-Defendant & Subject of Film
  • Darcy McGraw, Director of the Connecticut Innocence Project
  • Yale Student Filmmakers, Director: Matt Nadel ’21 Co-Creator, DP, Editor: Lukas Cox ’19 Producer: Keera Annamaneni ‘20

Being a Minority in STEM
The historical lack of diversity in STEM fields has been an issue that continues to persist from affecting students' academic decisions to workplace dynamics. The First-Generation, Low-Income Community Initiative would like to create a space to talk about diversity (or the lack thereof) in STEM fields through a conversation between students, faculty, and alumni in our community. The conversation will hopefully give people a space to talk about the difficulties but also share ways to make space in the field. We invite individuals of all identities (this is not an exclusive event for first-generation, low-income students) to discuss how this affects them and how they deal with it to give people a space to express themselves, share their experiences, and learn from each other. This event will be held on March 26th from 4:00-5:00 pm in the Good Life Center Lounge (Byers 417). Light refreshments will be provided. Please fill out this very short form if you plan on attending (https://goo.gl/forms/ImfBRXCx9WpJMCjY2). Feel free to share this event and we hope to see you there! 
 
The Good Life Center Lounge is located in Silliman College above the dining hall on the fourth floor. Instructions are available on the FB event page. For more detailed directions, feel free to look at the GLC website at this link (https://www.yaleglc.com/glc-spaces).
