Ep 386: AADAP’s Dean Nakanishi & John Saito, Jr.


In response to an alarming number of Asian American deaths due to drug overdoses during the Summer of ’72 in Los Angeles, local Asian American activists banded together and started the Asian American Drug Abuse Program. New CEO Dean Nakanishi and new trustee John Saito, Jr., not only reflect on the agency’s history, but also talk about its impact and dreams for the future as AADAP marks its 50th anniversary this month.
