Conference Co-Chairs
Peter Chang, M.D. Ph.D. and Nancy Li-Tarim

In a world challenged by antisemitism, hatred and racism, Holocaust Museum Houston (HMH) is a beacon of memory and hope, shining light into darkness and seeking ways to promote a more humane society.  To stand in solidarity with Houston’s diverse and dynamic Asian community, HMH will host the Moving Forward: Challenging Racism Conference. During the conference sessions and presentations, we will look back at the long history of Asian America and then ask, “What Next?” How do we move forward together, beyond racism, to a society that fosters equality and social justice for all?

Held at HMH, this conference is free to attend, but registration is required. Attendees will receive a copy of Paula Yoo’s book, From a Whisper to a Rallying Cry: The Killing of Vincent Chin and the Trial that Galvanized the Asian American Movement.
