Reading is Resistance Readathon is an experiment that combines community, education, and fundraising.

IT'S LIKE A MARATHON, BUT FOR READING!

For the month of May 2017, Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, communities from Asian and Pacific Islander descent are engaging our current political climate with purposeful action. Sign up here to join!


OUR COMMITMENT AND PRACTICE

We read to speak and act from a deep foundation of the historical work for liberation.

We read to imagine and create a more loving and just world.

We read to overcome paralysis by focusing on specific actionable opportunities.

We read to resist cultural amnesia by reading and sharing knowledge.

We read to share our stories as a deeper analysis of the work needed for shared liberation.

We read to support organizations doing critical work.

JOIN US!

1. Commit to read 1-2 books by/about APA experiences, and choose an organization to support that does work related to the book you're reading.

2. Invite your community to join you by sponsoring you to read! They'll give directly to the organization!

3. Write a one-page reflection to share with your sponsors! This gives them the extra perk of learning as you learn, while giving to a good cause.

SIGN UP HERE (participation is open throughout May)
