A3C and CAPSU will be hosting a live podcast "My Asian American Identity: Insecurities" with Asian Boss Girl (ABG) and members from aKDPhi and KPL. There will be a Q&A after the live podcast!ABG is a podcast for the modern day Asian American woman hosted by Melody Cheng, Helen Wu, and Janet Wang. ABG was started as an outlet for topics that they are interested in, and for sharing stories they have as 20-30 something year old Asian American women working, dating, and living in Los Angeles. It's no secret that Asian women are lacking in almost all media outlets. As three women working in finance, tech, and production who balance careers, life aspirations, and eventful social lives, they hope their perspectives can help, inform, and entertain those girls (and guys) with similar backgrounds or an interest in their backgrounds.

For this ConversAsians event, we will partner with the Intergroup Dialogue Project and the Asian American Studies Program to discuss how to engage with parents and other relatives about anti-Blackness, police brutality, and other forms of racial violence. What are the challenges we face in connecting with our parents and other relatives about these issues? What are some strategies for communicating with family members? How can we support each other as we confront anti-Blackness with our families?

The Asian & Asian American Center and Women’s Resource Center are excited to announce our October event “An Intimate Evening with MILCK!” Join us on Thursday, October 21 at 7pm EST for an evening of storytelling and live music. Attendees will have an opportunity to ask MILCK questions during the live Q&A. Content warning: stories and experiences about the challenges of growing up with traditional Chinese parents, sexual assault, and anorexia may come up during the event.
  
Connie Lim aka MILCK is a recording artist and champion for social justice. In 2017, her song " (I Can’t Keep) Quiet"—her reclamation of her voice from sexism, racism, and abuse—became the unofficial global anthem for the Women's March movement and was listed as the No. 1 protest song of the year by Billboard. MILCK had the honor of performing “Quiet” at the ESPYS as survivors of Larry Nassar walked the stage to receive the Arthur Ashe Courage award, a moment that aligned with Connie’s belief that inner healing can ripple out to global healing. Her cover of “Ooh Child” has been used in international Olympics Commercials with P&G. She continues to write and produce for film/tv. As a way to express gratitude for the blessing of being able to create music, she created the #ICANTKEEPQUIET Fund.

In 2020 MILCK released her 2nd EP Into Gold, executive produced by Malay (Frank Ocean, Alicia Keys), as an ode to the journey of going from survivor to thriver, with Time Magazine listing her leading single "If I Ruled the World" as song of the week. She continues to share her songs and speeches about owning one's voice on stages with the likes of Yoko Ono, Michelle Obama, Oprah, Cheryl Strayed, Glennon Doyle, Michelle Williams, Dionne Warwick, Jason Mraz, and Ani DiFranco.
