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!
