Crushing The Myth is a speaker series dedicated to Asian American topics. For August, we’re renting out a Soho rooftop and packing it with speakers, food, drink, and music!

The old “Model Minority” label is outdated and doesn’t reflect modern-day Asian America. So let’s CRUSH the myth, and talk about cultural issues that are important to our current generation.

– Each topic below will be narrated by a speaker through their own story and experience.
– Audience members are encouraged to meet and discuss the stories in between speakers and during the intermission.

About Crushing The Myth:

Crushing The Myth is a nationwide Speaker Series that features Asian Americans and allies. We aim to share Asian American stories and perspectives with a global audience while building a strong community of leaders, thinkers, and influencers.

Asian America today is more than just the “Model Minority” label. Let’s stop thinking Asian Americans are one big, stale monolith and start telling Asian American stories that make people LISTEN, LEARN, INSPIRE.
