--------------------------------------------- VOLUNTEERS NEEDED TO MOBILIZE THE ASIAN AMERICAN COMMUNITY IN PREPARATION FOR: --------------------------------------------- (1) Vigil in Memory of YongXin Huang On Sunday, March 23, 1-4pm at Columbus Park in NYC's Chinatown (Bayard & Baxter), we will hold a vigil in memory of YongXin Huang, a 16-year-old who was shot in the back of the head by NY Police Officer Steve Mizrahi. Despite evidence that shows YongXin Huang did not resist arrest, the Brooklyn DA has failed to indict Mizrahi for the killing and he still serves on the police force.

The rally is sponsored by the National Congress for Puerto Rican Rights, Alianza Dominicana, Almighty Latin King & Queen Nation, Association of Pro-Inmates Rights, Azabache, Center for Puerto Rican Studies at Hunter College, the Committee Against Anti-Asian Violence, Jews for Racial & Economic Justice, Malcolm X Grassroots Movement, Muevete, National Action Network, Parents Against Police Brutality, Positive Workforce, Student Power Movement, Youth Agenda, Youth Force, Workers World Party. --------------------------------------------- On Friday, March 14, the Committee Against Anti-Asian Violence will be holding a meeting for those interested in helping to prepare for these events.
