Summer Intern, OCA-NY ASIAN PACIFIC AMERICAN ADVOCATES' 11TH ANNUAL HATE CRIMES PREVENTION ART PROJECT

OCA-NY is looking for a college student or recent college graduate for a full-time summer internship position to coordinate OCA-NY's 11th Annual Hate Crimes Prevention Art Project.  While 2017 marks the 35th Anniversary of Vincent Chin's death,  the same xenophobic  hatred is reemerging in today's divisive political climate.  Now, more than ever, this Project is needed. This Project involves coordinating and training of diverse high school teenagers from select youth organizations on hate crimes and using art as a tool to prevent hate crimes.  These youth will then devise the rules of a city-wide hate crimes art contest, advertise the contest, judge the submissions, and plan the opening of the Art Exhibit, which is the culmination of the Art Project. For more background about the history of the project, please go to www.oca-ny.org.
