Fullerton College, College Center Conference Room 224
The Cadena Cultural Center, Asian Pacific Islander Faculty & Staff Association invite the campus community to the 8th Annual Asian American & Pacific Islander Forum with Guest Speaker from "Search to Involve Pilipino Americans (SIPA).
Keynote theme will center on Larry Itliong,
Though not a name immediately associated with the farm labor movement of the 1960s in California, Itliong was the one who led Cesar Chavez to the picket lines that cemented Chavez' place in the history books. Unlike the image many remember of Chavez, Itliong sported a crew cut, chewed cigars, loved to gamble, and, because of a work injury in an Alaskan cannery, bore the nickname "Seven Fingers."
