What are the ways you can get involved? From poll monitoring with AALDEF (Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund) to mentoring high school students with High School Conversations, we’ll present the many ways you can get involved this year. We’ll watch news clips and discuss the most pressing issues for APIAs in nearby communities, specifically Chinatown. We’ll discuss the specific barriers for Swatties as volunteers (e.g. not having time, transportation) and ways we can negotiate them as well as our strengths, weaknesses, and interests as potential volunteers. We’ll have special presentations by representatives of several campus service groups and* food*!

*Growing up Mexipino: A Reflection on Multiethnic Identity and Community in San Diego*
Dr. Rudy Guevarra, Jr.
Asian Pacific American Studies Program, Arizona State University
Dr. Guevarra?s comparative analysis on Mexipinos illustrates how historical forces and the interethnic relationships between Filipinos and Mexicans sustained this identity over several generations, and how this experience contributes to the discussions surrounding multiracial and multiethnic identity.  Dr. Guevarra received his Ph.D. in History from the University of California, Santa Barbara, and is a former UC Berkeley Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Fellow.  His book manuscript, *Mexipino: Mexicans, Filipinos and the Forging of Multiethnic Identities and Communities,* is currently under review.  He is also co-author of *Filipinos in San Diego* (Arcadia Press, 2010) and co-editor of *Crossing Lines: Race and Mixed Race Across the Geohistorical Divide* (Alta Mira Press 2005).

*5. Stop the Deportation of Eddy Zheng – Sign the Petition!*
Stop the Deportation of Eddy Zheng
Eddy Zheng was sentenced to over two decades in jail at the age of 16, in a process language barriers prevented him and his family from fully understanding. Since his release, he has distinguished himself as a leader in prisoner rehabilitation and youth violence prevention, winning the appreciation of the San Francisco mayor and  other elected officials. Yet, as a non-citizen, he faces deportation for his ancient crime. Zheng has applied for a governor’s pardon, and you can help him win it.
