I was born in the Philippines, raised in Chicago, and have been an LA local since 2001. Every space I occupy has shaped me to be the community organizer that I am today. On-campus, I am involved with Pomona Theatre, IDAAS, AARC, QRC, CLSA, and am an affiliate for CLS. I am currently working on a San Diego Rep commissioned play and FilAm Arts Teatro.

I was born in Vietnam, migrated to Mississippi as a child boat refugee, and attended Berkeley for my PhD (after undergraduate at the University of Florida). These places have been instrumental to my thinking on race & immigration.
I am writing a new book on "contested meanings of success" in the Vietnamese diaspora, with a focus on the ways in which envy and superiority are projected among different workers in different occupations. I am usually in my office in Hahn 222.
Interested in learning about the racialization of South Asian Americans and radical Desi organizing?

This week in our APIDA highlight series we’re featuring Dr. Bilal Nasir (He/Him/His). Read on to hear more about Dr. Bilal Nasir in his own words!
I am currently the Chau Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in the Intercollegiate Department of Asian American Studies (IDAAS). My office is located in Lincoln 1100. I received my Ph.D. in Cultural Anthropology and a Certificate in Comparative Race and Diaspora from Northwestern University. My research and teaching are mainly focused on policing and carceral studies, anti-Muslim racism, anthropology of Islam, South Asian American and Arab American studies, social movements, and decolonial theory.
I grew up in a predominantly working-class South Asian American community south of Seattle, WA, and am part of what is called the "9/11 generation." I developed my political consciousness in the context of the domestic War on Terror as I witnessed the proliferation of policing and surveillance apparatuses targeting my community. These experiences eventually led me to graduate school to conduct research on issues around race, empire, and Islam.
I am currently serving as the faculty advisor for the Committee on South Asian Voices (CSAV), and also advise students from the South Asian Mentorship Program (SAMP). I am usually available to meet with students on Wednesday afternoon in my office. Shoot me an email and stop by to say hello!
I am currently working on my book project tentatively titled, The LAboratory: Policing, Race, and Muslim Politics in the City of Angels, which I plan to share more about during my Chau Mellon lecture in the spring. I am also co-hosting a series across the 5Cs called "Critical Muslim" with Dr. Soham Patel, which brings together scholars, artists, and activists from across the United States committed to thinking about policing, war, and global solidarity in the context of the ongoing global War on Terror. I am also looking forward to offering the course "South Asian American Studies" again during the spring semester.
Interested in ethnic studies or decolonization? Professor Patel, Visiting Assistant Professor of Comparative Ethnic Studies at Pitzer College, will be teaching two courses next semester. Read on to hear more about Professor Patel in his own words!
“Next semester, I will be teaching two sections of Introduction to Comparative Ethnic Studies (we’ll be reading about the Third World Liberation Front, Paulo Freire, Frantz Fanon, Eric Williams, Joanne Barker, Aimé Césaire, George Lipsitz, Combahee River Collective, Audre Lorde, among many others). I will also be teaching Spirit of Bandung: Third World Internationalism and Decolonization. In this class, we’ll be reading Vijay Prashad, Adom Getachew, Frantz Fanon, Robin D.G. Kelley, Sohail Daulatzai, Cynthia A. Young, Stokely Carmichael, Noura Erakat, Diane Fujino, Angela Davis, June Jordan, among others.”

I grew up nearby the Claremont Colleges in Riverside County. The cities that make up Riverside County are not your typical white suburbs. Many of these cities, contrary to widespread knowledge, are Black and Brown. I grew up with people from all parts of the world: Asia, Africa, and Latin America. Even though I identify as a South Asian, as a kid in the Inland Empire, I always connected with people different from me. We were undocumented immigrants, refugees, Black, and working-class, all just trying to survive this beast called the United States of America.
This significantly shaped my worldview, especially after 9/11, when the USA invaded Iraq and Afghanistan. My friends and I would listen to hip-hop. In high school and college, we grew to understand the relationships between violence enacted domestically by police forces and globally by the US military. We saw no difference between the tanks rolling into Kabul and Baghdad and police cars patrolling the streets of America. My desire to make connections across differences continues to drive my work today: to think about how and fight against systems of power that oppress, dominate, and sometimes kill people similar to those I grew up with in Riverside County, CA.
I am currently organizing a speaker series with Prof. M. Bilal Nasir titled Critical Muslim: Between Scholarship and Activism. Our next event will be a film screening of A Stray (2016) and a conversation with the Director Musa Syeed. You can find me during office hours MWF 10-11 AM!
This week in our APIDA highlight series we’re featuring Jason Nguyen (they/them), who is a sophomore at Pomona College. Read on to hear more about Jason in their own words!
Hi I’m Jason! I am a sophomore at Pomona College majoring in Media Studies (Film/Video) and potentially minoring in either Art or STS. I was born and raised in Oakland, California. Oakland’s sense of community and pride is what makes it stand out from the rest of the Bay Area. Oakland is just a melting pot of so many different diverse cultures and experiences. I love this city with all my heart and am glad to call it my home.
On-campus, I am currently a member of 5x5 films and the founder of the 5C's doodle jump club (.doodlejump). I also work at the communications department at Pomona as a student videographer/photographer and at the production center at Pitzer as a production assistant.
I have a short film called “Anxiety is Being” which is entered into Rode Reel 2021, one of the largest online short film competitions. You can watch and vote for the film here: https://myrodereel.com/watch/12546.
This week in our APIDA highlight series we’re featuring Jacinda Lee (she/they), a student at Pomona College. Read on to hear more about Jacinda in their own words!
My name is Jacinda! I'm a Pomona sophomore hoping to declare as a Neuroscience/Anthropology double major. I identify as a first-generation Taiwanese American, born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. I don’t think I ever really got to connect with Taiwanese culture outside of the few times I was able to visit family in Taiwan. Growing up in Utah, where it is predominantly white and upper-middle-class, I experienced dissonance in defining my identity and often felt isolated in my experiences. I find myself frustrated with how much emotional and physical labor is expected from young POC (specifically WOC). I've grown to become critical of the "expectations" placed upon me by reframing my identity outside of what I've internalized.
Last year, I have been learning and growing within the practice of mutual aid as a volunteer, artist, and organizer. I strive to maintain these practices/values with me on campus. I started out by selling stickers made from paintings I’ve shared the proceeds to local mutual aid groups through the project: "Stickers for Mutual Aid.” As of March 2021, I have redistributed $4100+ to mutual aid groups and individuals! I enjoyed evolving my project alongside my work as a volunteer for the Salt Lake Community Mutual Aid, but it has been nourished into a network of relationships that goes far beyond me. I have done my best to be consistent as it's really important to me to stay in tune with my community's dynamic needs. Throughout the last year, it has radiated out into multiple collaborative events, becoming a shared platform for many artists and different mediums of art and has inspired me to continue reimagining our futures. Since then, I've started organizing SLC's first community fridge network and series of "Really Really Free Markets" alongside other community members. I hope to bring my ideas and projects on campus with me and am excited to create relationships with those who are interested in joining me!

This week in our APIDA highlight series we’re featuring Sarah Lynn Miralles (she/her), who is one of the Program Coordinator of the AdBoard. Read on to hear more about Sarah Lynn in her own words!
Hello! I am Sarah Lynn Miralles, first-gen pinay. I currently hold two positions: 1) the Program Coordinator for the Asian American Advisory Board; 2) the Community Engagement Coordinator for Asian American Studies. I have a BA from University of San Diego and a MA from San Francisco State University, both in Ethnic Studies. I've been at the Claremonts since Sept. 2017.
I was born and raised in Las Vegas, NV and went to private Catholic school from K-12. There wasn't much of a diverse community, so I became aware of my racial and ethnic identity from an early age. I was fortunate to find Filipinx/APIDA community through church and dance. It was similar for my undergraduate experience. Attending a pwi it was difficult to find community at first, but thankfully I found Ethnic Studies and the multicultural center. It was these spaces that taught me the importance of centering community and healing in my work.
I am mostly in my IDAAS office these days - Lincoln 1119, but I do make my way to the AARC. I'm open to meeting with folks. Feel free to email me to catch lunch or coffee/boba :)
If you are interested in collaborating or have any ideas for programs, I would love to work with you!
This week in our APIDA highlight series we’re featuring Sonam Rikha (she/her), who is one of the current AdBoard Student Program Coordinators. Read on to hear more about Sonam in her own words!
Hi! My name is Sonam Rikha and I’m a sophomore at Pomona College majoring in International Relations and Asian Studies. This school year, I am a Student Program Coordinator for the 7C Asian American Advisory Board. When I’m not helping coordinate events for AdBoard or curled up in the library studying, you can find me binge-watching the Avatar the Last Airbender series or listening to the Frozen soundtrack for the thousandth time.
I was born and raised in Chicago but currently live outside of the city. I grew up in one of the most diverse neighborhoods in Chicago and was constantly surrounded by people from different cultures, socioeconomic classes, immigration statuses, etc. My experience being raised by Tibetan refugees in a multicultural neighborhood has provided me with a more nuanced perspective on the world and sparked my passion for cross-cultural dialogue.
Besides working at AdBoard, I am an Asian Studies liaison and a blogger for VOICES (the Pomona College admissions blog). You can find me at the AARC every Thursday and Friday from 10:00-11:00 am.
This week in our APIDA highlight series we’re featuring Hanna Cho (she/her), who is one of the current Adboard interns. Read on to hear more about Hanna in her own words!
Hello! I am Hanna Cho, and I am a Scripps senior majoring in Politics and minoring in Asian American studies. I was born and raised in a suburb outside of Nashville, Tennessee. I was really excited to go to college because I wanted to be a part of the Asian affiliated clorgs as well as take courses about APIDA communities, histories, and politics. Shout out to Professor Thomas Kim and his Korean and Korean Americans course (he will be teaching it next spring) for helping me find meaning in my Korean identity.
I am currently working with the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association on creating an anti-bullying toolkit for APIDA families and students. If you have any book recommendations for any age level pertaining to APIDAs (fiction or non-fiction) or workshop ideas, please share it with me so I can add it to a guide for middle and high school students for their own APIDA clorgs.
My dogs, my partner, and my friend Shirley (she graduated last spring and I miss her a LOT) bring me joy! My office hours at the AARC are from 9-10:30am every Thursday if you need me :)
Looking to plan an event? Collaborate with AdBoard! We can help with funding, workshop materials, guest soak ears, snacks, & more! Email or DM us. Request for funding link in bio.
