Asian Student Alliance Advocacy Summit at Pitt rescheduled for tonight, March 25, online via Zoom.



The Advocacy Summit organized by the Asian Student Alliance at the University of Pittsburgh, scheduled for March 21 and later cancelled, was rescheduled today for tonight at 9:00 pm.
Pitt Asian Student Alliance's mission statement is as follows: "(ASA) exists to further the development of Asian and Asian American identity and interest...We discuss identity and current social issues pertaining to Asians in the United States..." ASA is well known for being a large social organization where people who identify as Asian and Asian American can come to make friends, learn about their culture, and become civically engaged with issues pertaining to the AAPI community.

And so, with that being said, we would like to welcome you to our first ever Advocacy Summit! By attending this event, you will be exposed to many different topics and issues that the AAPI community faces and challenges daily. We hope that you will learn from the workshops and your peers, provide valuable input into the discussions we'll be having, and leave feeling empowered.

Because of the current quarantine situation, we will now be hosting all the workshops online over Zoom. If you do not have Zoom installed on your computer, please visit pitt.zoom.us for details, or contact an ASA board member to help you out. Workshops will be held from March 25 to March 30 at 9 PM everyday. If there is a day that you cannot make the workshop you wanted to attend, you can always contact the facilitators!
