We will be sharing the great successes of this past year and will also be announcing the winners of the Helen Zia Award for Leadership, the Ronald Takaki Award for Community Engagement, and Student Engagement Award. Dr. Terry K. Park will be featured as this year's keynote speaker.

Currently a lecturer in History & Literature at Harvard University, Dr. Park has taught courses in American, Asian, and Asian American Studies at the University of California, Davis, Hunter College, San Quentin State Prison, Miami University, Wellesley College, and Harvard. Included on the list, “Inspiring Activists: Trailblazers and leaders in the community and in the struggle for social justice” by San Francisco Supervisor Jane Kim, Dr. Park's scholarship and teaching shapes, and is shaped by, his participation in and leadership of several community-based Asian American organizations, including a stint as Executive Director of Hyphen magazine, an award-winning print- and web-based publication on Asian American culture, politics, and arts. His 2006 off-Broadway solo show, 38th Parallels, was produced by Pan Asian Repertory Theatre and received critical acclaim.
