OCA Greater Chicago, the Chinese American Museum of Chicago, the Coalition for a Better Chinese American Community, and the Chinese American Service League have partnered together to provide a community screening of the documentary, "Rising Against Asian Hate: One Day in March," as we all prepare for National Voter Registration Day (NVRD) and for Voter Education Week in early October. The community is invited to watch the film and at the same time to participate in a voter registration drive for NVRD or other voter engagement activities. Learn more about the fight against anti-Asian hate following the mass shootings in Atlanta in March 2021.
The Center for Asian American Media co-produced the documentary. Sandra Oh recorded the narration and Jon Batiste is providing some of the music. Many people from our community became motivated to get involved after the Atlanta shootings, but not everyone has recognized how it's connected to building power through the power of our vote.
The film is scheduled for a nationwide broadcast for October 17th on PBS but you can catch an early screening with us on September 17, 2-4PM at the Chinese American Museum of Chicago (238 West 23rd Street, Chicago, IL 60616)!
