Violence, healing, & solidarity
About the Conference
Join us at the #ImReady2019 conference happening on September 20, 2019 at the Oakland Asian Cultural Center in Oakland, CA. This year, our major convening will focus on self-identified Asian and Pacific Islander women, girls, and gender non-conforming communities and our experiences and leadership with Violence, Healing, and Solidarity. The event will be hosted by our organization, AAPI Women Lead, which was created to build upon the progressive politics of Asian and Pacific Islander communities in the United States through the leadership of self-identified AAPI women and girls and in solidarity alongside other communities of color.
Our conference will include table talk conversations and fire side chats to examine violence against Asian and Pacific Islander women, girls, and gender non-conforming communities. Our conference will include our communities’ reclamation of traditional forms of healing. We will host workshops and provide healing opportunities such as acupuncture, body work, yoga, effective communication, and intuitive healing. Workshops and agenda subject to change.
