The Issue:

Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders are exhausted from the pandemic and rise in anti-AAPI hate, and for the longstanding pressures to perform as model minorities, to live up to our parents’ dreams and ancestors’ sacrifices, and to uphold an American system that values more our labor than our dignity and cultural identity.

The Solution:

It is time for AAPIs to rise by resting. We are designing a group retreat for AAPI leaders who have poured out an extraordinary amount of effort these recent years in fighting stigma from the pandemic, showing up for racial justice all the while providing for our children, honoring our elders and code-switching and bridging the divides within and beyond our communities. The retreat introduces and deepens healing and joyful practices that are grounded in Asian traditions, disrupts our daily grind in service of American capitalism, and opens up possibilities for individual and group resilience, community building and solidarity.
