ChitChat: AffirmAsians in collaboration with Cliché's Kim Vongkhamchanh

This month, we want to celebrate Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month by affirming our fellow Asian womxn through their experiences and culture within the U.S. 

Rather listening to non-Asian perceptions (typical stereotypes that people generalize and stereotype us for) - we are having a panel discussion with Asian womxn in the Chicagoland area about successes, failures, experiences, and the intersectionalities they identify with.
