Asian American Affinity Group Seminar
Feb 23, 2017
6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
1632 Hopkins St
What does it mean for Asian Americans to take their place in the broader conversation on race? How does being Asian American intersect (if at all) with Christian faith? Join us for this important conversation.
We will start with dinner (of course) and there is some pre-seminar homework.
Registration is required. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
