A recent 2017 study by the Cancer Prevention Institute of California finds that breast cancer is on the rise among Asian American women. But what’s behind the increase? Host Ernabel Demillo reports on the findings, including interviews with top breast cancer surgeon Dr. Margaret Chen, breast cancer survivors, and SAPNA who’s doing outreach in the South East Asian community for free mammogram screenings.
It’s been 35 years since a young Chinese American named Vincent Chin was brutally murdered in Detroit, Michigan. The incident galvanized a Pan-Asian American movement and serves as an important movement in civil rights history.
The Feminist movement in the age of President Donald J. Trump has brought women together in the fight for equality - but many women of color including AAPI women are still fighting to make their voices heard. They want more than just a seat at the table. Asian American women want to lead the conversation.
Since ancient times, chocolate has been referred as the “food of the Gods” and it is undoubtedly one of the most beloved sweets of all time. People automatically associate chocolate with France or Belgium, but there is a growing number of Asian Americans making and infusing Asian flavors - elevating this ultimate comfort food to a whole new level.
