PEER TALK: ELEVATING THE VOICES OF ASIAN ACTORS
Wednesday, May 12, 2021, 6 to 7pm., Zoom
In light of the recent increase in anti-Asian hate, this interactive discussion will delve into the experiences of Asian actors in a predominantly white industry. Our panelists will discuss their career and achievements and share about their personal experiences as Asian Americans. Attendees will gain new perspectives and draw inspiration from the AAPI community in television and film. Our featured speakers include Tamlyn Tomita (Joy Luck Club, Karate Kid), Hudson Yang (Fresh Off the Boat), Aubrey Anderson (Modern Family), Ella Basco (Birds of Prey), Miya Cech (The Darkest Minds, Rim of the World), and Crystal Kung-Minkoff (Real Housewives of Beverly Hills).

ECSL has long-supported literacy as a service learning initiative. In a former meeting, we heard about global efforts to bring books to children through the story My Librarian is a Camel. Here is an opportunity, brought to us by an ECSL member, to support literacy via GlobalGiving.org. Alif Laila, a story teller bus, is crowdfunding to bring book by bicycle to children in Pakistan. You can investigate their efforts here.
