Aarathi D. Haig, Staff Attorney at Asian
American Justice Center

AAJC is a non-profit civil rights organization dedicated to the advancement of Asian Pacific Americans (APA) through federal policy. AAJC Staff Attorney, Aarathi D. Haig says, “While progress has been made, racial and ethnic discrimination is still a serious problem for APA business owners.”

A Renewed Appetite For Risk
by Kenneth W. James, CFA


Stock investors could scarcely have asked for a better quarter. The rally that began in early March continued to power upward. All the major indexes moved into positive territory for 2009. From their March lows, the S&P 500 at one point had risen just short of 40%, the Dow was up 34.4%, the Nasdaq shot up 46.8%, and small caps climbed a head-turning 53.8%. Increased stock issuance, technical resistance levels, higher mortgage rates, automaker bankruptcies, and higher unemployment didn’t faze investors who are betting the economy will grow its way out of the recession.


Restaurant Peek: Bones
By Wasabi & Shoyu


When is an Asian restaurant not an Asian restaurant? When it’s Bones, a restaurant owned and operated by the acclaimed – but non-Asian – chef Frank Bonanno that serves amazing Asian-influenced cuisine with a gourmet French flair. Bonanno is a local food entrepreneur who already ran two popular restaurants on the corner of 7th Avenue and Grant St, the nouvelle Mizuno and Italian Luca (and another, Osteria Marco, in Larimer Square).


Richard Suinn, Ph.D. By Annie Guo


Professor Richard M. Suinn, Ph.D. was recently elected to serve on the American Psychological Association’s Council of Representatives, the policy- making body of this national organization. The American Psychological Association (APA) is the voice of American Psychology and with its 150,000 members is the largest organization of psychologists in the world. APA sponsors an annual convention in cities such as San Francisco, Chicago, New York and just last month in Toronto uniting up to 15,000 participants. Dr. Suinn, a Chinese American, was the first Asian American elected to the APA presidency and the third ethnic minority person in this office in more than 100 years of the APA.

He is currently an emeritus professor of psychology, having served as Head of the Colorado State University Psychology Department for 20 years. He is the author of the Suinn-Lew Asian Self-Identity Acculturation Scale, the most used measure by researchers studying Asian-American acculturation. He recently authored a book chapter showing how acculturation among Asian Americans influences physical and mental health, family adjustment, school achievement, and response to counseling. Dr. Suinn lives in Fort Collins, Colo. where he was also on the city council and mayor.


Japanese American Resettlement Through the Lens:
Dr. Hirabayashi shares accounts of Nisei community during WWII
By Mary Jeneverre Schultz


World War II afficianados, Asian Americans and history buffs interested in Colorado will definitely be curious about a recently-published book on Japanese American resettlement. This pictorial book was written by UCLA professor Lane Ryo Hirabayashi and Denver resident Hikaru Carl Iwasaki, who collaborated on a unique historian perspective. It is the first time a book has addressed questions directly related to official War Relocation Authority.


presidentHello AAm Readers,
Fall is officially here and students are back in school! I’m proud to say that last month the U.S. College Board announced that Asian American students achieved the best scores in the 2009 U.S. SAT college entrance exams. Although we strive to break our “Asian-American-model-minority” stereotype, I appreciate the foundation of a good work ethic and the importance of education that is emphasized in our Asian American families. Keep up the great work to all of our students as they embark on another year of learning!



Erika Tanaka had held it together.

On May 30, the night of the program’s finale show, the judges named her the 2009 Miss Asian American Colorado (Miss AACO). She held in the tears and brandished her trademark smile as last year’s winner, Duacee Lor, placed the crown upon her head.

For two months, the 20-year-old Regis University student had been a part of the Miss AACO program, earning experience through a variety of service projects and forging lifelong relationships with young women who became her surrogate family of sisters.
