Event Description

Calling all Omusubis / Rice Balls / Queer & Trans Japanese folks!

What does it mean to be in solidarity with Black folks? What does defunding the police really mean? How are we showing up as queer & trans Japanese-Americans in this moment of time?

This is a virtual affinity space for us to be tender and honest about where we are in our understandings of our connections to white supremacy and anti-Blackness. This is the 2nd part of a longer conversation, but you don’t have to have attended part 1 to join!

Who Is This Event For?

This is a space for Queer and Trans Japanese diaspora to connect, dialogue and support actions in solidarity with Black community

Presenter Bio

Omusubi is a fun and caring multigenerational community of LBTQ+ women and trans people of Japanese ancestry based in the San Francisco Bay Area. We are committed to inclusion, empowerment, safety, and racial, gender, economic, and ecological justice. Musubu means to tie together. We are tied together by our appreciation of our diasporic histories and cultures, our shared values, and our engagement in social, cultural, and political activities.
