The past few years have proven the importance of knowledge as we learned to overcome the hardships presented by COVID-19, the rise in Anti-Asian violence, ongoing mental health struggles, and more. We can only heal the scars when we educate ourselves, acknowledge our past, and focus on the future.
As we are transitioning to a new normal, Jezuba hopes to create new opportunities for the communities to grow through virtual and live events. Back in 2021, we hosted “Asian American Voices,” a series aimed to bring the APPI community closer as we braced ourselves for the targeted hate and violence. In our first session, Edward Tepporn, Executive Director at Angel Island Immigration Station Foundation, gave the audience a great presentation on the history and significance of Angel Island. In May 2022, we celebrated AAPI Heritage Month by providing 300 hot lunches to the senior citizens of Oakland, Chinatown.
We are now happy to announce that we are partnering with MJAA for a guided tour to Angel Island, where we will learn about our Asian American roots and heritage. Join us on Saturday, November 12th as we continue our journey of uniting the community together.
