South Asian Social Justice Collective  Conversation Café Event Topic: Exploring South Asian Identities in Care Professions - North American Context  Join us at this FREE event. South Asian identities are rarely discussed in depth in mainstream literature, education, and professional environments. While spaces are becoming advocates of “diversity” and “inclusion” how often do you see South Asian voices? Let's create that together. This event provides an informal friendly space for all South Asians and the diaspora to safely share about their experiences in the North American context as a student, professional and/or community member in the “caring” professions. We acknowledge the differences and similarities we share and recognize that there are tensions between our communities.

However, this is a space to start to form a collective in light of the North American context. What do we mean by.... South Asian -Ancestry from India, Tamil Eelam, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal The Diaspora - first, second, third generation immigrants from South Asian countries. It includes the Indo-Carribean communities from Trinidad, Guyana as well as Fiji that have been dispersed through effects of colonial imperialism Examples of care professions: social workers, nurses, social service workers, youth workers, mental health advocates, occupational therapists, therapists, educators, policing, writers and creative influencers... RSVP early as spots are very limited. Please RSVP by Sunday February 10, 2019 11:30 PM (Midnight) to ensure a guranteed spot (subject to change)
