WE ARE NOT
The WE ARE NOT SAME SAME event highlights the misconception that all Asian countries can be placed under the one umbrella, without regard or respect towards their differences in culture, individuality and history. This event will be spotlighting the implications encircling exotification, sexism, objectification, racism, stereotyping and diaspora. The goal is to create an intersectional feminist platform for people of Asian descent and allies to come together, share experiences, begin discourse and find empowerment.
