Inspired by the Kochiyama family’s tradition of radical hospitality, AAWAA reflects on Yuri’s legacy and how we can build on her leadership model fueled by compassion, openness to learning from others, deep commitment to building solidarity between communities and tireless dedication to doing the ordinary, often undervalued everyday work necessary to create social change. What world do we want to build together and how can we nurture, sustain and inspire each other in the process? Topics will also include: building Black and Asian solidarity, intersectional activism, and intergenerational knowledge sharing.
