In 1982, Vincent Chin was the victim of a hate crime murder in Detroit.  Thirty years later, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders continue to face discrimination and bullying.  In light of recent tragedies like the extreme hazing and subsequent death of Pvt. Danny Chen and the continuing effects of 9/11, what can Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders do to stand up against racism and discrimination?

Viewing parties have been organized in more than 30 cities and individuals can tweet in questions at #VC30.
