On December 7, 2016, All Peoples Community Center attended the Vigil at the Japanese American Cultural & Community Center. Our name All Peoples means that All are welcome so it was important to stand in solidarity with our diverse Community Members.

 

A Message from the Sponsors:

Vigil in Little Tokyo to Stand Together with Muslims and Immigrants

In response to the need to both process the recent election results and to respond to the increase of hate crimes against Muslims and immigrant communities, the Nikkei for Civil Rights & Redress (NCRR), the Nikkei Progressives (NP) and the Vigilant Love Coalition are sponsoring a vigil this Wednesday, December 7, 2016 in the Plaza of the Japanese American Cultural and Community Center (JACCC) at 5:00 PM.

We pledge to make Little Tokyo and all communities a safe place no matter a person’s race, religion or gender preference. We pledge to see Little Tokyo as a welcoming place – as long as they take their shoes off.

We are Muslims. We are immigrants. We are People of Color. We are Sikhs and Jews. We are LGBTQ. We are marginalized. We are women and we all stand together.

On Saturday September 24, 2016, All Peoples Community and FamilySource Center took a total of 32 students, 7 parents and 3 staff on a college field trip to visit two universities: University of California, Riverside and California State Polytechnic University, Pomona.  Students and parents had an opportunity to learn about the campus history, admission requirements, and financial aid. Parents also had an opportunity to get answers to questions such as:

  • What is the average class size and the student-to-faculty ratio? Are most classes taught by professors or by teaching assistants?
  • What is the campus meal plan like? How is the food? What are the options?
  • What is the makeup of the current freshman class? Is the campus fairly diverse?
  • What’s the social scene like? What kinds of activities are available?
  • Is there plenty of dorm space or is there a housing crunch?
  • How many students are commuters and how many are campus residents?

“One of the most compelling and important reasons for taking the students and parents on this tour was so that they could see the college firsthand – the classrooms, dorms, and library that the students would be living in for the next four years in the event that they were to commit to these universities,” says Deisy Huerta, Youth Director at All Peoples Community Center. “Students and parents had an opportunity to see the buildings inside and out, including classrooms, dorms, dining halls, gyms, and libraries.

One of the things that parents and students liked the most about these universities was the fact that they were close enough to home where if students need something, the parents were only 40 minutes away, but the distance was also long enough to where students would have an opportunity to dorm and get a full college experience.”
