One of our NGEC OFP leaders, Katie Ka Vang of CHAT, was featured by Bao Phi,  performance poet and community organizer/ activist.  He was asked to start a blog  called “The Blaog” for the the Strib – a large MN mainstream paper.

In addition to other recent events he’s covered, there’s a new feature called Asian Americans: My First Protest, where he features Asian Americans and their first protest experience. 

Share your own story, and check out the The Blaog!
