Humboldt Asians and Pacific Islanders in Solidarity (HAPI)

November 3, 2021 

 

The final in the EA Roundtable series is on

Wednesday, November 3rd at 5:30 p.m.,

with leaders from HAPI.


Marylyn Paik-Nicely is third generation Korean and Japanese, was born and raised in Hawaii, and was the Director of the HSU Multicultural Center.

Terry Uyeki was born and grew up largely in the Midwest, and was Director of Evaluation and Community Services at HSU’s California Center for Rural Policy.

Join ‘Founding Mothers’ of Humboldt Asians and Pacific Islanders in Solidarity (HAPI) in this interactive session as they share how this local affinity group formed, and how local persons of Pan-Asian heritage unpack race and identity.
HAPI began as Taiko Swing Humboldt in 2019, and has continued throughout the pandemic to host educational and cultural events and projects related to the history of and issues impacting Asians and Pacific Islanders.
Learn about their most recent Eureka Chinatown Project, and how understanding revisionist history through the lens of the oppressed is a key element in the healing of our country’s past and moving forward in solidarity.

When you register, you will be asked whether you identify as Black, Indigenous, or People of Color (BIPOC), mixed race, or non-BIPOC/White. This will make it easier for us to create breakout groups for the race-based affinity spaces.

Please note that this final Roundtable of the year will take place on the first Wednesday of the month rather than the first Thursday. Please make sure to mark your calendars accordingly. 

We look forward to having you join us on November 3rd!

If you have any questions about the event or how to register, please contact us at equitynorthcoast@hafoundation.org.
