The State Bar of Michigan 34th Michigan Legal Milestone marker commemorates Ferndale as the birthplace in 1983 of the pan-ethnic Asian American civil and victim's rights movement resulting in the formation of the civil rights organization American Citizens for Justice. In response to the injustices in the 1982 beating death of Vincent Chin in Highland Park, Michigan, members of the Asian American community assembled at 22828 Woodward Avenue, the former Golden Star Chinese Restaurant located in the northeast block of Woodward and Nine Mile, where Chin was employed. The people of Ferndale are proud to host this memorial and we stand united for the fairness and justice for all people as we celebrate and value America's diversity.
