On June 7th, 2014, SAAPRI co-sponsored an Asian American Town Hall at the Japanese American Service Committee to address Jianqing Klyzek’s Chicago Police Department (CPD) brutality case that shows video footage of a Chicago police officer striking Jianqing, threatening to put her in a box, and deport her.
SAAPRI was one of over 25 community organizations to co-sponsor the event.
Thank you to all those who attended our event!
