2021 Asian Pacific American Heritage Month: “In the Margins” Opening Ceremony

Mar 15, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Who was Yuri Kochiyama?
Protesting alongside Malcom X, a renowned Black Revolutionary, Yuri Kochiyama cut a critical figure as a Japanese American woman within the Third World Movements of the early 1960s. Today, as Asian Americans reflect on their histories and spaces within human rights activism, we hope to embody the posture of Yuri Kochiyama, who worked tirelessly to end oppression, poverty, and marginalization.
In society, marginalized communities are pushed off to the sidelines, and like traditional margins they are taken for granted and are never given the credit and recognition they deserve. This APAHM, we celebrate our rich cultural heritages alongside our growing consciousness into social justice.
Between 1-4PM at the Reflecting Pond, stop by our table to meet our APAHM Committee, learn more about events, and pick up promo items + free milk tea from Dang Boba and Musubi house!
In the evening time, we are inviting all community members, alumni, and students to join our virtual evening showcase! There will be student skits, performances, and games with our orgs, with speakers like President Cartwright and Mayor Demings, joining us to recognize the significance of Heritage Month!
6pm to 8pm online at https://ucf.zoom.us/j/95351322109
