Seattle Community College-Central Campus

I teach history (US, women, Asian American / ethnic studies) at Seattle Central Community College in Washington state.  Activism through AFT Seattle 1789 and the Asian Pacific American Labor Alliance informs my writing and teaching.  My interest in community-based histories comes out of volunteering for Densho, Japanese American Legacy Project and community dialogue committees for the Wing Luke Asian Museum. I'm currently working with Washington Physicians for Social Responsibility's Hanford Nuclear Reservation curriculum project.
