"Passing Down the Legacy"
Friday | February 24 | 3-4pm
Cross-Cultural Center Comunidad
Provided by Joseph Ramirez

"Passing Down the Legacy" follows the Bridging Communities youth program in Los Angeles, Seattle, and San Francisco. Bridging Communities was established in response to a number of hate incidents against the American Muslim community in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks. Recognizing the similarities that Japanese Americans faced in the aftermath of Pearl Harbor ultimately resulting in their
incarceration, Bridging Communities was meant to build solidarity and
partnership between Japanese American and Muslim American community. Questions? Contact Linda Chang at Lic017@ucsd.edu. For event info, visit the SPACES website at spaces.ucsd.edu


Breather Series: Yogayoga

Friday | February 24 | 12-1pm
CCC Comunidad


Please join us for a FREE hour of vinyasa yoga, a faster-paced "flowy" type of yoga that focuses on moving with the breath. It's a good starting point for those just starting out, for those who assume that it's boring and slow, and for folks who say they don't want to try it because they're not flexible enough. Bring your yoga mat if you have one and wear comfortable clothing. Limited yoga mats and water will be provided. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to email me at violetag@ucsd.edu.
