One response

  1. Hey, sorry I couldn’t make the meeting yesterday. I had a quiz in my comp sci class and so I didn’t have time to get to the meeting, but I wanted to know if you guys were interested in going to the Listen to the Silence Conference. It’s going to be at Stanford University and it’s about Asian American issues. The website with more information is http://aasa.stanford.edu/lts/index.html
    I personally haven’t been to one, but my sister graduated from Stanford last year and she always went to these and said they were pretty interesting. If you guys don’t want to go then it’s fine. I just wanted to pitch an idea.
