Dear Friend:

It's not too late to sign up! Learn more about the case of Professor Xiaoxing Xi (above left), a Chinese American physics professor at Temple University who was suddenly arrested at his home in May 2015 and prosecuted by the U.S. government for passing technology secrets to China. The charges against him were dropped because in its rush to judgment, the federal government misconstrued his academic research. Professor Xi is just one example in a long list of Asian American scientists--from Wen Ho Lee to Sherry Chen--who have been falsely charged with espionage.

We are honored to have Joyce Xi (above right), daughter of Professor Xi, speak about her family's ordeal. She is calling for the U.S. government to apologize for its misdeeds and take action to prevent unjust racial profiling of Asian American scientists in the name of national security. 

Join us on Tuesday, October 4, 5:30 to 7:30 pm, at Roosevelt House (47-49 East 65th Street) in New York City for a special event organized by the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund and Mapping Asian American New York (MAANY). Peter Kwong, Distinguished Professor at Hunter College and co-author of Chinese America: The Untold Story of America's Oldest New Community, will join me in moderating this event. Please RSVP here by October 3. For more information, visit AALDEF's website or call 212.966.5932.

Special thanks to Roosevelt House and Dean of Arts and Sciences, Hunter College, and to our co-sponsors (list in formation): Asian American Bar Association of New York (AABANY); Asian American Studies Program, Hunter College; Coalition for the Revitalization of Asian American Studies at Hunter (CRAASH), Columbia University Asian American Alliance, and NYU Asian Pacific American Law Students Association.

Please join us on Oct. 4 for a discussion about this important fight for civil rights.

Sincerely,

Margaret Fung
Executive Director
