AAPI Rising: Round Table with VAYLA

August 18 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

Join our team in this AAPI Rising installment to learn more about who we are and what drives us. Engage with us & support our petition for inclusion.

VAYLA’s Executive Director, Jacqueline Thanh, MSW will be moderating a conversation between VAYLA’s team to discuss what it means to engage in community building, learning and unlearning through movement work, and how we sustain ourselves. Join us in conversation and come get to know us in our push for racial equity.

Sign and share our petition for inclusion, Other is Not My Identity: www.change.org/OtherIsNotMyIdentity.

The language of “other” is a microcosm of the hierarchical narrative of white supremacy that reigns in our country and leaves communities more susceptible to the dehumanization and violence that disenfranchisement creates.

When it comes to data collection and dissemination, Louisiana does not celebrate or acknowledge our diversity. Data is only broken down into three categories: White, Black, and Other, erasing the countless contributions of non-Black/non-White communities, as well as the needs of each of those communities.
