The 1982 Murder of Vincent Chin
Wednesday, June 23, 2021 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM
To build bridges of understanding, we must take time to listen to the experiences of others.
Rolling Ridge is launching "Voices and Stories" as a new ONLINE series that uses historical education and contemplative listening to open hearts and minds to the events that have shaped American society today.
With the recent rise of anti-Asian sentiment, the "1982 Murder of Vincent Chin" will serve as the third event of our "Voices and Stories" series. The recent flare-up in violence against Asian Americans is reviving the story of Vincent Chin, a Chinese man beaten to death in Detroit by two white men who never spent a day in prison.
This case of injustice for the Asian community ignited a movement in Civil Rights history that many people don't know much about.
Join us on June 23rd from 11 am to 1 pm to learn about the murder of Vincent Chin and how his death continues to be a rallying cry for Asian American activism. Following an overview of this aspect of American history, we will move into a time of contemplative sharing and reflective conversation as we consider the implications on anti-Asian hate today and what we need to do to build bridges of understanding and to take a stand for justice.
Although there is no fee for this program, your generous donation allows Rolling Ridge to continue our mission and ministry of contemplative spirituality. Thank you.
