APA Compass: The 1882 Project

The US Congress passed resolutions this summer formally apologizing for the 1882 Chinese Exclusion Act, which denied citzenship and basic rights to Asians for more than half a century.  Numerous Asian-American groups under the umbrella of the 1882 Project  worked passionately for several years to attain this apology.  We learn from the organizers why the apology and education are essential for protecting civil rights for all Americans.
