equal spirit, equal mind
I have an unhealthy obsession with Disneyland, Christmas, and food.

Hi, it would mean a lot to me if you could take a second to read this!
This year, thanks to the Seeding Change Summer Fellowship, I will be spending my summer working closely with Chinatown Community for Equitable Development (CCED), a grassroots, volunteer-run organization that seeks to unite and empower the residents of a quickly gentrifying Los Angeles Chinatown.
I grew up in the San Gabriel Valley, and have spent many weekends making the short journey to Chinatown for dim sum, getting the odd hair cut, and restocking my family’s restaurant supplies. As I’ve grown up, I’ve come to understand things about this city: it isn’t purely Chinese, the local businesses here work long and hard, and many Asian Americans in my community have seemed to forget about it and its rich history. As developers come in, many long-time businesses have been forced to close; residents (97% of whom are tenants) have begun to see their rents rise to a price that they can no longer afford. Families are losing both their homes and their sources of income – and no one seems to be listening to them.
I have watched my own parents face discrimination and bullying because of their inability to speak English fluently. I’ve seen shame and embarrassment blatant on my mother’s face as she silenced herself from asking any questions, or defending her actions. It wasn’t until I was much older when I realized that I could use my own privilege, as an educated, second generation Asian American, to fight back the people who have only pushed around my parents and many others like her.
CCED works hard to lift up the voices and concerns of people like my parents, who have been all but erased in this agenda of gentrification. Their concerns need to be at the forefront in this period of change. We need all the help we can to ensure that we continue the work that we do. As a fellow, I am dedicating my full time to CCED, and hope that you can support me by donating $25 to the fellowship that allows me to fully concentrate on the work I am doing for, and with, the Chinatown community. Any amount counts and every donation is helpful! The total amount will go: one-thirds towards continuing the fellowship next year, one-thirds to CCED, and one-thirds towards a reconvening in SF at the end of Summer. THANK YOU!!
i think i want to see a cartoon about these guys
Omg.. The way the cat slows down to allow the bun to catch up, probably because it knows how much the bun likes to stop and look at stuff
