Sticky Rice Project is a political education program of the Asian American Resource Workshop that puts on anti-oppression and anti-racist workshops, trainings, discussions and other events for an Asian and Pacific Islander audience.

Sticky Rice Project's Fighting Anti Muslim Violence working group is hosting an informal dinner conversation for South Asian diasporic people. In light of the prevalence of anti-muslim violence both globally and in the US, we are hosting an informal dinner conversation on Fighting Anti-Muslim Violence (FAMV): Talking with our Families. We will share our stories, successes, and challenges when talking with our families about FAMV, challenge assumptions we may have about our families, and create support networks and exchange resources with each other, leaving with concrete commitments about how we are to utilize what we have learned to create exchange with our loved ones. 

This is a space for non-Muslim people to step up into solidarity work and for Muslim people to share what they would like to see. Care will be given to adhering to a group constructed set of agreements and values and we recognize that things may be triggering in this space for people who are Muslim and/or are impacted by anti Muslim violence. There will be resources in the space to debrief. If you are interested in mobilizing against anti-muslim violence in the South Asian diaspora and in our families, please join us for this discussion.

This workshop is open to anyone who identifies as South Asian or as a part of the South Asian Diaspora. If you have any questions about your participation, please contact: janhavi@aarw.org

Dinner will be provided. Gathering is Free but RSVP is required as it will be hosted in a home so please fill out this form so that we can know your access and dietary needs:
