October's Program Meeting will feature Wen Chen, Ph.D., Scientific Analyst, California Institute of Technology and Public Speaker for Chinese Culture, History and Human Rights

Dr. Chen's topic is the HUMAN RIGHTS MOVEMENT IN  CHINA. She was born in China during the Great Cultural Revolution. Being a victims of the horrific atrocity that killed two million intellectuals and destroyed traditional Chinese culture, her parents had  mixed emotions about her education. Dr. Chen eventually won a national prize at a science competition when she was 16. In 1994, she came to the U.S. and received a doctorate degree in Biology at California Institute of Technology in 2000. Because of her personal experience of being brain washed in China, she decided to be a voice for the voiceless. Since 2012, she has given over 200 presentations to community organizations about Chinese culture, history, and human rights.
