2017 Symposium Highlights

Eddy ZhengEddy Zheng is co-director of the Oakland-based Asian Prisoner Support Committee (APSC). A Chinese immigrant, he was incarcerated at 16. In prison he taught himself English and became socially conscious. The ordeal motivated a lifelong commitment to youth violence prevention, to raising awareness about the large number of Asian and Pacific Islander immigrants being deported, detained and imprisoned, and to addressing the root causes of the crisis. In 2007 he led a book project that culminated in “Other: An Asian and Pacific Islander Prisoners’ Anthology.” He is the subject of the award-winning documentary, “Breathin’: the Eddy Zheng Story.”
