People of color know what it's like to feel seen, but unseen. When we’re visible, we’re usually typecast. We define ourselves differently than how people see us, which is why we seek spaces for self-definition.
Defining Desi is an event series which explores what it means to be South Asian or desi identified in a time of political upheaval, and how we can use storytelling and activism to advocate for our community and others. This space is for everyone — we come together to support the South Asian community but welcome people of all identities to show their support and share their stories.
