Sticky Rice Project’s Economic Justice working group is putting together an offering in the format of a free two part workshop! The first workshop, offered on Nov 16th explores class and economics through personal story telling and the historical context of class and wealth within the Dorchester neighborhood of Boston. We hope to end our time together by constructing our own defintions around the concepts of class and economic justice. The goal of this workshop is to strengthen the conversations we are having within our families (given and chosen) around class, wealth and economies so that we are preparing ourselves to both do inter-community and solidarity work.

*We intend this workshop to be an intergenerational space of Asian and Pacific Islander diasporic people (this includes and is not limited to people who can trace their identity and connect it to South Asia, East Asia, South East Asia, Pacific Islands, Carribeans) and includes mixed race people. Therefore, we highly encourage you to invite your family members, friends and elders!!

We are asking people who are interested in coming to please fill out this short form (which also contains more details about the workshop) so that we may make the space language and learning accessible to all. If you are inviting family members or guests, we only need one form per family!
