FOR YOUTH OF COLOR: Asia is not a Monolith - Understanding Asian Diversity

Youth of Color

This group is for anyone who identifies as a Person Of Color (POC). We welcome everyone, but if you are not a POC, please consider giving more space to the POC and respect their voices.

"The Asian American community is extremely diversified, with more than 150 years of history. Despite these complexities, Asian Americans are frequently perceived as a monolithic group, with prejudices and myths masking their genuine identities. In recent years, there has been a rising acknowledgment of the necessity of understanding and celebrating Asian American diversity. To properly grasp the richness and complexity of the community, we must look past the prejudices and myths that have long hidden their identities." - Joydolls.com

Join Jack and Madison from the Hugh Lane Wellness Foundation in this chat about the many diverse cultures that exist across the continent of Asia, as well as around the world.

(Metaphorical) Arson Chat

"So far away, we wait for the day
For the lives all so wasted and gone
We feel the pain of a lifetime lost in a thousand days
Through the fire and the flames, we carry on" - DragonForce

Join Jack and Beck from the Hugh Lane Wellness Foundation as we (metephorically) set fire to the things that do not sever us. We'll acknowledge barriers in our lives, the things that rob us of joy, and the connections that no longer serve us, and we'll brainstorm ways to carry on through the fire and the flames.
