Our project and its current state
- We have conducted interviews to contextualize the issue. We have also partnered with Asian Staff @ Princeton (a faculty resource group on campus).
- We seek to overturn xenophobic racial assumptions that deny the American identity of Asian Americans through education, exposure, and engagement for American society to recognize that Asian Americans are Americans.
- Our long-term goal is to change the American identity to be inclusive and celebrate all cultures.
- Our short-term goal is to create a campus-based project that educates individuals from their original assumptions about Asian Americans and initiates a desire to explore Asian American culture and history.
