Alternabreak Recap!! 🙌🏻🥳 with things quickly picking up speed post-spring break, we wanted to highlight this year’s Alternabreak, a Pomona-Pitzer spring break trip that encourages students to examine issues impacting the APIDA immigrant and working class communities while connecting students to AARC and CAPAS community partners.

Over the course of three days, Pomona and Pitzer students traveled to Cal State Long Beach to visit the on-campus Dream Center and APIDA Center, went on a “toxic tour”, visited South Asian Network, visited the Pacific Island Ethnic Art Museum (PIEAM), and enjoyed moments of reflection, journaling, delicious food along the way (Sophy’s, Seafood City)! Check out what these folks were up to and keep your eyes open for opportunities to participate in future Alternabreaks! 👀😎🎉

We’re hosting an AARC workshop about Indigenous Tattooing in Okinawa on February 16th (Friday) from 4:30-6:00 PM! Snacks and drinks will be provided:

Ava Chiru Kvapil is an indigenous Ryukyuan tattoo artist and fine artist from Long Beach, CA. A significant part of their tattoo career focuses on hajichi revitalization: tattooing traditional Ryukyuan hand tattoos for those of Ryukyuan descent. This workshop will cover a brief history of hajichi, its symbology and various styles across the Ryukyu Kingdom (now Okinawa), and how it is being practiced today.

Participants will be able to make their own temporary "hajichi-inspired" indigenous hand tattoos, either based on their own cultural practices or something entirely personally driven.
