We are against hate which targets continually marginalized people, no matter if they are Asian, Asian-American, Pacific Islanders, Black, Indigenous, people of color, and LGBTQ+ identifying. We support movements for reform, protest, and equality. A collection of resources and organizations working toward these efforts, and those which offer support, can be found here.

We will continue to amplify marginalized voices, and welcome all, their ideas, their events, and their words. Our words here are not enough, but we wanted to say we support you and will continue to do so through our actions.

An additional list of support and relief funds can be found here.

For details regarding specific events please contact the organizers or venues. If you are an organizer or venue and would like to reach out to us please feel free to contact us or submit an event using our submission form. We’d love to hear from you!

Peter Martin | China’s Civilian Army: The Making of Wolf Warrior Diplomacy

November 10 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Join author Peter Martin for a look into the untold story of China's transformation from an isolated and impoverished communist state to a global superpower from the perspective of those on the front line: China's diplomats.
