APABA's APAHM Event: A Panel Discussion on Fisher v. University of Texas

  • Thursday, May 23, 2013
  • 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
  • APALC, 1145 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90017
APABA is proud to present its annual Asian Pacific American Heritage Month Event: A Panel Discussion on Fisher v. University of Texas:  The Impact of Race-Conscious Admissions on the Asian-American Community.  Though Fisher did not directly deal with Asian-Americans, the issue of race-conscious admissions (also known as “affirmative action”) and the experience of the Asian-American community has come to the fore in this case.  Both proponents and antagonists of race-conscious admissions programs have referred to the Asian-American experience in support of their arguments, and indeed, Asian-American groups have submitted positions on both sides of the issue.

This panel discussion will explore the impact of race-conscious admissions to the Asian-American community and to diversity, generally.  The Supreme Court will soon opine on this issue, and the panel will examine the nuances of how Fisher may impact our communities.
