CAMOC ED Ben Lau Joins ABC7 Town Hall Meeting “OUR CHICAGO: Voices of the Community”

ABC7 Reporter Stacey Baca explores the interesting story of how and why these communities decided to settle in Chicago. Members of Chicago’s Asian American and Pacific Islander communities joined the discussion to share how this very diverse group has made its mark in certain neighborhoods, on the local restaurant scene, with small businesses, and by establishing cultural and community centers. How have these enclaves evolved or expanded, and what are the issues of most importance now and for the future?

Other guests included: Jean Mishima from the Japanese American Historical Society, Dr. Evelyn de Asis Natividad from the National Federation of Filipino American Associations, Tejas Shah from the Indo-American Center, and Yoon Tae Kim from The Korean Cultural Center of Chicago.
