The Perspective Project welcomes AAJC President John Yang
Waynflete’s student-led Perspective Project yesterday hosted John Yang, president and executive director of Asian Americans Advancing Justice (AAJC). The online event was the second to address this year’s theme of “The Age of Misinformation.” The evening concluded with a Q&A session.
Mr. Yang’s longstanding involvement and leadership in the Asian American and Pacific Islander communities began in 1997, when he co-founded the Asian Pacific American Legal Resource Center, a nonprofit organization that sees to the direct service legal needs of Asian Pacific Americans in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. Today, AAJC fights for civil rights and empowers Asian Americans to create a more just America for all through public policy advocacy, education, and litigation.
