ASIAN COALITION KEEPS THE TRADITION GOING
                        By Minh-Hoa Ta and Mo-Shuet Tam, Co-Chairs

Welcome back to a new semester!
We had a very successful scholarship dinner last year. The highlight of the evening was the
testimonial speeches from the scholarship winners. Their stories generated much emotion and
inspired Dr. Chenming Hu from the University of California at Berkeley to donate $5,000 to the
AC scholarship fund. We hope other AC members, alumni, and friends would also be encouraged
to donate to our scholarship fund. Your generous donation has made a difference to many
students’ lives and to their future.

For the New Chinatown/North Beach Campus struggle, AC members were there at the College
Board meetings, the Court house hearings, the press conferences, community meetings and
lastly the ground breaking in November. Together as a group, AC members joined hand with
faculty, staff, administrators, AFT 2121, SEIU 790, students, community leaders and supporters;
we have given a voice to the citizens of San Francisco who have been waiting for a new campus
in their community for over 30 years. Now, we can finally expect to see the new campus open
its door in 2011. One should never under-estimate the power of unity towards social justice!

With the daily headline news, nobody can disagree that the nation is experiencing an economic
crisis and the California educational systems are facing a severe budget cut. It is more
important than ever that we continue to work together to assist our students, members and
community. Our hope is, with the new leadership nationally, and locally, we can expand
opportunities for those whose needs are great.

During the spring of 2009, AC will hold an election for our new officers . The election and
potluck will be held on Friday, March 13th. (Editor’s note: details are in this newsletter). Please
consider running for the AC officer positions. You will find that the job is truly rewarding. Our
AC Scholarship Dinner has been scheduled for April 17th at the Hong Kong Flower Lounge
Restaurant at Millbrae. The Restaurant is one block from the Bart Station and parking is
available. Our Keynote Speaker will be Dr. Griffin. Please mark the event on your calendar and
spread the words to friends and interested individuals in the community.

We wish you a very happy semester!

Milestones of the New Chinatown-North Beach Campus—A Timeline

By Deborah Huszagh-Lockwood, Ellen Yeung, Agnes Chan and Joanne Low

The search for a permanent Chinatown-North Beach Campus has been a thirty year pursuit, and
finally, thanks to the staunch support of all elements in the City College family as well as
citizens from different walks of life and communities of San Francisco, the new campus will start
construction in the Spring of 2009. The following is a brief summary of the thirty-year struggle.
These are postings on a bulletin board on the current CNB Campus.

1977 The San Francisco Community College District establishes the Chinatown-North Beach
Campus. Previously, classes in Chinatown were administered by the Alemany Center. The
search for a permanent home begins.

1981 Chinatown Campus moves into 940 Filbert site. A 20-year lease is signed. Following the
1989 earthquake, the search for a permanent site begins urgently to accommodate the growing
needs of Chinatown Campus.

1996 Purchase of the Colombo Building and adjacent lots, with the intent to build at the
corner of Columbus and Washington.
                                                  2
1998     The Colombo Building Plan is abandoned due to lawsuits and the prohibitive costs of
restoring the historical Colombo building.

Fall 2005   Purchase of lot at Washington and Kearny. Due to small size of lot, architects
propose a 16-story high-rise. Environmental Impact Review (EIR) report submitted.

Fall 2006     Opposition from neighbors emerges as high-rise design becomes known. Most vocal
is the Hilton Hotel which is 34-story high

June 2007      First public hearing is held by CCSF’s Board of Trustees on Draft EIR at Gordon Lau
Elementary School in Chinatown with more than 600 people attending the meeting. Students,
staff, community representatives speak of the desperate need for a new campus. Several
neighborhood groups and the Hilton Hotel speak against it, submitting written comments in
opposition to the design. In subsequent months, the Board weighs comments on adopting the
Draft EIR and proposed design.

July 2007    Various groups in Chinatown unite. A coalition called The FRIENDS FOR
EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY IN CHINATOWN is born to support the struggle for a new Chinatown-
North Beach Campus. To publicize the issues, press conferences are held and 10,000 signatures
collected on petitions and postcards.

September 2007      Labor union leaders, minority organizations, CCSF instructors,
administrators, and elected officials step forward to support Chinatown-North Beach Campus.
The WE SHALL NOT BE MOVED COALITION is formed to counter attacks from the Hilton Hotel and
advocate for the educational rights of the ―underserved.‖

October 2007     Students at Chinatown-North Beach Campus mount a bilingual letter-writing
campaign to the CCSF Board of Trustees, trying to convince the Board of the urgent need for a
new campus. Trustees receive over 900 letters each, handwritten by individual students in their
native languages: Chinese, Vietnamese, Spanish and Portuguese. Many also write in English.

October 18, 2007 After hours of testimony, the Board of Trustees unanimously approves the
new CNB Campus project, voting in favor of either a 14-4 or 13-5 two-building design.

July 2008 After months of reviewing the two designs, the Trustees approve the 14 - 4 building.
In response, two lawsuits are filed by the opposition against CCSF.

November 1, 2008 Groundbreaking.

December 2008 All lawsuits are settled. The construction of the new Campus can move
ahead.

Spring 2009     Once the State of California approves the plans, CCSF can proceed with
construction.

Spring 2011     Expected date of completion


Thank you, members of the Asian Coalition, for your active role
in this struggle!

                                       By Monika Liu
The Asian Coalition of City College of San Francisco, now in its twenty-sixth year of
offering scholarships will be awarding ten (9) scholarships of $500.00 each, and one (1)
in the amount of $600.00. In addition, two (2) Grand Scholarships of $1,000 will also be
awarded to deserving students of Asian and Asian Pacific Islander ancestry. Five of the
scholarships come directly from the Asian Coalition. Five are from gracious repeat
donors. The other two are offered by new donors for this year. Additional donor
scholarships may become available in varying amounts. Interested students must be
currently enrolled in either Credit or Noncredit courses at any of the campuses of City
College of San Francisco. International students are encouraged to apply.
Four of the five scholarships established by Asian Coalition, honor the memory of John
Yehall Chin who served as one of the members of the first Board of Trustees in the San
Francisco Community College District. The fifth scholarship honors the memory of Victor
Chow, a former faculty member of the Biology Department at the Ocean Campus and co-
founder of Asian Coalition.
Of the five additional repeat donor scholarships, three are individual memorial
scholarships and two are from a non-profit organization. One memorial scholarships
honor Mr. T. F. Tsao in its sixth consecutive year; one honors Mr. T. S. Zau in its second
year; and the other one honors Ms. Winnie Leong's father. Also, now in its fifth
consecutive year the two scholarships (one $500 and one $1,000) are being offered by
the Square and Circle Club, a S.F. Chinatown community-based women’s fund raising
organization that has been donating scholarships to C.C.S.F. students for the past 53
years.
The new donor of this year, Dr. Chenming Hu, a Professor from UC Berkeley, contributed
a $1,000 scholarship. Mr. Hilary Hsu, our former Chancellor, donated one $600.00
scholarship bringing the total of twelve (12) scholarships for this year.
The purpose of each scholarship is to acknowledge the struggles and sacrifices Asian and
Asian Pacific Islander students encounter in pursuing their educational goals and to
provide encouragement for their endeavors. Selection criteria include academic and
career goals, financial need, school/community service, potential leadership skills, and

                 Mental Health Workshop for Immigrants a Big Success
                                     By Joanne Huang

        New Student Counselors Quinci Lee, Joanne Huang and DSPS Counselor John Wilde
collaborated on a mental health workshop for immigrants hosted at City College of San
Francisco’s Chinatown Filbert Campus on December 4, 2009. Zhen Wang, M.D., who is on staff
at the Shanghai Mental Health Hospital at Shanghai Jiaotong University, was the guest speaker.
        Dr. Wang is a practicing psychiatrist in China and has been in San Francisco for the past
two years as a visiting scholar conducting research on PTSD at the Veterans Administration
Hospital. Dr. Wang generously volunteered his time to offer his expertise to our students. The
workshop was conducted in Mandarin and English translation was provided by Quinci Lee and
Joanne Huang.
        The workshop addressed mental health issues that relate to the immigrant community.
In particular, Dr. Wang presented information on dealing with the stresses of being a newcomer,
keeping mentally healthy, and how to seek help in coping with mental illness.




                   Quinci Lee, NSCD Counselor, presents Dr. Zhen Wang with a Certificate of Appreciation.

              Chinese American Historical Archive Needs Your Help!
        A project to microfilm Him Mark Lai’s collection of Chinese American newspapers is in
need of donations to continue the project. These newspapers are currently housed at the Asian
American Studies Library at UC Berkeley, but newsprint quickly deteriorates and microfilming
will provide access to this valuable collection for many years to come. It will cost approximately
$20,000 and so far $3,000 has been raised.
        Him Mark Lai, an engineer by training, has been called the ―dean of Chinese-American
studies‖ and his life passion has been researching Chinese American history. His collection of
historical materials is unique and as he described it, ―not easily obtainable in nor collected by
most research libraries‖ (source: Annotation: The Newsletter of the National Historical
Publications and Records Commission, Mar. 2003). Though he is quite ill he is still preparing to
organize and pack up the rest of his archives for shipping to UC Berkeley.
                                                             5
       The City College Libraries have several of Him Mark Lai’s titles in its collections including
Chinese American Voices: from the Gold Rush to the Present, and Island: Poetry and History of
Chinese Immigrants on Angel Island 1910-1940. The fund-raising effort is spearheaded by Kong
and Agnes Chan. Donations are tax deductible. The UC Berkeley Tax ID is 94-6090626. If you are
interested in donating, a form is attached.

                                                    Inauguration
                                                                   By Eva Cheng

                                I did not have the luxury to physically experience this historically
                                monumental event. I watched it on TV, read it in the newspapers, and
                                talked to friends and colleagues and students about their impressions.
                                Everyone voiced HOPE, Excitement, Relief and Joy!

                                From the images in the media to the life interactions with people, I
                                too was overwhelmed with emotion.

I shared the tears of the elderly African Americans as they witnessed one of their sons take the
oath of the highest office of the United States of America.

I smiled as the young people cheered and danced and flashed the peace sign.

I looked at the middle aged workers. Their weary faces breathed signs of relief and guarded
optimism as they intensely listened to President Obama's message on the reality of reviving the
economy.

And the immigrants showed faith that this country will restore its respect for and acceptance
of the newcomers.

Parents and children listened to the promise of better and safer schools.

The consumers were elated at the hope of a cleaner, greener environment and improving
American manufacturing standards of higher quality and more energy efficient products.

Citizens of the United States of America were glad to know that our President will work hard to
restore our international reputation as a promoter for human rights, justice and peace.

Every American felt the inspirations of our multicultural President with a humble background
who has turned every challenge into an opportunity for success.

At last, I sensed the end of illegal wiretappings, false imprisonments and inhumane tortures. I
could smell the end of illegal wars!

And most important of all, I pray for our new President (and his beautiful, extended First Family)
that wisdom, justice, strength, determination will guide him during his White House residency.

                  NEWS FROM THE ASIAN STUDIES DEPARTMENT
                        By Laurie Wu McClain Department Chair

The Asian Studies Department has a marvelous faculty who often go way beyond their
normal teaching load to serve our City College students better and to gain recognition
for the College.

First, we have a new faculty member—Liu Hsin-Yun (Melody) who holds a Ph.D. from a
German University and is teaching Mandarin at the College. Welcome to Hsin-Yun!

Our Japanese language instructors—Fumiko Grant, Mikiko Matsumura, Sachiko Nicholson,
Hiromi Rustigan, and Keiko Sato have just published their book, INTRODUCTION TO THE
JAPANESE LANGUAGE, NIHONGO GANBAROO. Congratulations to all of them for this
achievement.

Instructor Benedict Lim presented a paper this semester at a Music Conference on his
unique techniques for teaching music to Asian students. His ideas will be published soon
in an upcoming book.

Instructor Doris Chun who also serves as a docent with the Asian Art Museum in San
Francisco, has been leading tours to the general public of the special Museum exhibit of
art and archeology in Afghanistan. Her expertise in Asian art is extensive.

Maestro Joshua Law has led the City Oratorio and Orchestra in a marvelous performance
of Handel’s Messiah. Grace Yu was one of the singers in this inspiring production.

The Department has sponsored several programs, including one on ―China’s Children of
the Russian Revolution‖ by Elizabeth McGuire from U.C. Berkeley, and ―China and
Taiwan: What Does the Future Hold‖ with Mr. Tony Ong, diplomat from Taiwan. Both
programs attracted full houses of students and interested community members. The
latter program was reported in the local Asian press. Thanks also to the Concert-Lecture
series and the East-West Group for co-sponsoring these talks.

Abdul Jabbar has been an important organizer of courses in the Interdisciplinary
Department designed to stimulate understanding of the Middle East. Please encourage
students to take ―Introduction to Islam‖ and ―Demystifying the Middle East.‖

           Students Saving Lives Across the State of California
                       By the California Transplant Donor Network


Here on the CCSF campus there are a little over 100,000 undergraduate students. That
number, coincidentally, is exactly the same number of patients currently waiting for a
lifesaving organ transplant in the United States. California is home to 20% of the patients
on the list waiting for a chance to leave their hospital beds and rejoin their friends and
families in leading a normal life. The biggest hurdle towards saving lives through
transplantation is the lack of registered organ donors. People often forget to register
their wish even though 90% of Americans say they are in support of organ and tissue
donation.

This year, campuses across the State of California are joining the '2009 Donate Life
California Campus Campaign' to increase awareness about the seriousness of this health
issue and to encourage students to save lives by registering as organ donors on the
Donate Life California State Registry. Remember that annoying pink sticker the kept
falling off your driver's license? Well now you can make it stick forever by registering as
an organ donor online at http://www.donatelifecalifornia.org or at the DMV next time
you renew your license. To get this information out, students on California college
campuses are hosting Donor Drives, using campus media to spread the word, and using
emails to encourage registrations. If you are interested in helping to save lives by
participating in the campaign please contact Toby Cheung at tcheung@ctdn.org
Remember, one organ donor can save up to eight lives and it only takes minutes to
register, minutes that may mean a lifetime for someone else.

Dear Friends,

Our dear friend and mentor, Him Mark Lai, has a wish that he hopes to be fulfilled in the
near future: he would like to have his collection of Chinese American newspapers of the
1920s and 1930s microfilmed. Currently he has donated them to the Asian American
Studies Library at UC Berkeley. However, being newsprint, they will fall apart and will
not be available for posterity. Neither the Chinese Historical Society nor UC has the
resources to fund the microfilming and that’s why we are sending out a call to raise
funds to support this important project for Chinese American history.

If you’re interested in helping out, please fill out the following and mail to:

KONG CHAN, 1314 M.L. KING JR. WAY, BERKELEY, CA 94709

Checks should be made out to UC REGENTS. The Library assured us that the entire
amount will go towards the project. Kong Chan will deliver the checks to the Library as
they come in and keep an accounting. We’re enclosing two copies of this letter here, so
that you can fill one out and use the other one to make copies for wider distribution.
Thank you in advance.

Yours sincerely,

Kong and Agnes Chan
