All across America, the issue of race based admission and the recent Supreme Court’s decision on affirmative action is a hot button issue.  We look at the in-depth report on the future of affirmative action for Asian Americans. 

Asian Americans are the fastest growing immigrant population in the U.S., making up over 5% of the national population.  But when we look at the number of Asian Americans in office, they are still in the minority.

In honor of the 15th anniversary of September 11th, the Sikh Coalition is exhibiting intimate portraits of Sikh Americans and their contribution to this country.

Caesar Chavez is a historical figure and civil rights activist, but little is known about the Filipino farm workers' Delano Grape Strike of September 1965. These men fought for fair wages and better working conditions.
