AASC strives to strengthen the voices of Asian Americans through
social awareness, progressive action, and political empowerment. We
provide an open forum in which issues of identity, race, gender and
sexuality can be explored and questioned; where stereotypes and
structures of oppression can be broken down and examined in relation
to Asian America, and where our diverse individual experiences can be
placed within a broader historical context.

Michael Linden ’15, President of the Wesleyan Democrats, wants to inform you about an exciting political event happening tomorrow evening:
William Tong, current member of Connecticut’s House of Representatives and a candidate for the US Senate (currently running against Susan Byceiwicz and Chris Murphy), will be on campus to speak with students about his story, his campaign, and his goals if elected Senator! All students are encouraged to attend.

Cool facts about William Tong: he is the first Asian American to serve on the Connecticut General Assembly, and was the first Connecticut legislator to endorse Obama when he first decided to run for President! Gotta love him just for those two little details.
