  2. SOMA Wishing Trees for an end to anti-Asian racism

    May 1, 2021, 9:00 AM - May 31, 2021, 9:00 PM @ Spiotta Park

    SOMA Wishing Trees For an end to all anti-Asian racism and in honor of all in the AAPI community directly and indirectly affected by violence and hate. Make a wish. Write it on a tag. Red represents Strength and Luck | White represents Mourning. Tie your tag to the string on the SOMA wishing trees for Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month in May 2021. Ask your friends and family to do the same. You can make our collective wishes come true by taking action to understand how the exclusion of Asians from racial discourse and community visibility leads to anti-Asian racism and enables the continued dismissal of Asian relevance in racial justice, community diversity, and school integration agendas.
