This year’s theme, “Not Your Model Minority: Challenging 21st Century Stereotypes,” reframes the issues facing Asian American youth as the key to our future. The conference is designed to open up dialogues for attendees to examine cultural taboos and stereotypes in the Asian American community and help them navigate issues relating to mental health, healthy relationships, and cultural identities.
