Professor Janelle Wong, professor of American studies at the University of Maryland will join us on March 18 for the adult group. Professor Wong research is on race, immigration, and political mobilization and thus will be a perfect speaker given our two Tikkun Olam groups focused on racial justice and immigration.
Professor Wong has conducted ground-breaking research on political participation of Asian Americans and is currently researching the impact on traditional conservative Christian movement by growing numbers of Asian American and Latino evangelical Christians. As a scholar and teacher, Wong has worked closely with social service, labor, civil rights, and media organizations that serve the Asian American population.
