Voicing Student Activism: Bridging Theory and Practice

This poster advertises a panel titled "Voicing Student Activism: Bridging Theory and Practice," which the Coalition for the Revitalization of Asian American Studies at Hunter hosted on March 17, 2010, at Hunter College. The panel brought together Hunter student activists speaking about their experiences organizing on campus around issues of race, gender, class, and sexuality to strategize and inspire "a new generation of student leaders who will continue a legacy of student activism on Hunter's campus." The poster's illustration depicts four individuals, two with fists raised, in front of Hunter's sky bridge.

The Hunter College Asian American Studies Program (AASP) was established in 1993. As the only academic program in Asian American studies in the CUNY system, the AASP offers a minor in Asian American Studies and other resources and programming. The AASP supports scholars, artists, and activists advancing scholarship in the fields of Asian American studies and critical ethnic studies and serves as a resource for New York City's Asian American communities. In 2006, the program was at risk of being cut due to a lack of funding. Students formed the Coalition for the Revitalization of Asian American Studies at Hunter (CRAASH) and saved the program within a year. CRAASH is now a student-run club that continues to advocate for the AASP.
