Already in 2016, We Too Sing America community conversations have occurred on campuses like the University of Berkeley, Towson University, the University of Mississippi, and the University of Texas, at bookstores like Booksmith in San Francisco and Potter’s House in Washington DC, and at community centers like the Asian American Resource Center (Austin), the Nashville Public Library, Asian Americans for Equality, the Ursuline Arts Center (Louisville) and the Sri Ganesha Temple (Nashville).
Here’s a list of upcoming conversations in May. Please spread the word and join us! If you’d like to convene a conversation at your place of worship, with your youth group, on campus, at a government agency, at a corporate affinity group event or at your community center or local library, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
