Welcome to Kinetic!
It was 75 years ago that Congress finally ended the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882; 30 years ago that the U.S. government formally apologized for the internment of Japanese Americans during WWII. Behind the present-day Asian American success story is a darker narrative of cultural assimilation. It wasn’t hard work that earned Asian Americans acceptance by American society. It was the long, dehumanizing process of blending the lines between “us” and “them.”
Everyone is invited to join Kinetic to not only discuss the Asian American identity, but to also get moving to create the change you want to see. Our primary goal is to dismantle the model minority myth via targeted action.
