Listen to the Silence conference addresses Asian American issues

More than 400 students gathered at Cubberley Auditorium this weekend for the 18th annual Listen to the Silence conference, an event intended to bring together activists to discuss issues affecting the Asian American community.

“[Listen to the Silence] mainly came about because Asian Americans as a community felt that we didn’t have a space where we could voice issues and struggles and stuff,” said 2014 conference co-chair James Huynh ‘15. “That’s why it’s called Listen to the Silence—listen to this community that has a history of oppression.”
