The story of Vincent Chin is a tragic one, yet it is also the "founding story" of Asian America, for the tragic death of a man named Vincent would unintentionally give birth to a new community.
From the groundswell of anger and protest that erupted in response to the case, formerly divided Asian ethnic groups began to forge a new common identity and community, that of "Asian Americans." As such, we believe this website would be incomplete without a section dedicated to celebrating that community -- its people, its organizations, its progress, and whatever else strikes our fancy to post here.
At the same time, we want to provide some useful resources to help Asian Americans get informed, get inspired, and get involved to make their own unique contribution to a community still-in-the-making—to the Asian American community that is ultimately Vincent Chin's greatest legacy.
