Eddy Zheng: The Prisoner, The Immigrant, the Son, the Activist
In an interview with Professor Madeline Hsu, Eddy Zheng dismantles the veil of the ‘model minority’ myth to expose the historic and modern prejudice and violence faced by Asians in America.
Zheng works to mobilize resources to support Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) harmed by the unjust immigration and criminal justice systems to heal, keep families together, and build movements that shift narratives and policies.
