| 1 Comment

WLS-Channel 7 will present the latest program in its Emmy Award-winning "Asian Influences" series on Saturday, May 22 at 6:30 p.m., with an encore performance on Sunday, May 23 at 4:30 p.m. The newest edition, "Asian Influences: Influencing Change," explores the perception that all Asian Americans are well-educated and financially stable. There will also be a discussion about the impact of this perception as it relates to the 2010 Census and current redistricting legislation.

Bernie Wong, president of the Chinese American Service League; Rebecca Yemin Shi, with the Coalition for a Better Chinese American, and Sik Son, executive director of the Korean American Resource Center are among those who will provide their insights on how they plan to chart a new course for the Asian community in Chicago. "Influencing Change" also will highlight the work of the Zhou Brothers, who have an art gallery in Bridgeport.
