celebratE aApi communities AND build collective power
Friday, October 28th
Fairyland in Oakland, CA
A gala where community members can come and celebrate our communities, our different cultures.
Saturday, October 29th
Oakland Asian Cultural Center (OACC)
A celebration of our communities as well as a space for all of us to come together to share resources, mobilize, and Reimagine Everything.
This year's theme was inspired by Dr. Grace Lee Boggs’ speech “Reimagine Everything.” “the time has come for us to reimagine everything. We have to reimagine work and go away from labor. We have to reimagine revolution and get beyond protest. We have to think not only about change in our institutions, but changes in ourselves. We are at the stage where the people in charge of the government and industry are running around like chickens with their heads cut off. It’s up to us to reimagine the alternatives and not just protest against them and expect them to do better.”
