SAYAA (South Asian Youth Activists and Allies!) joined the April 10th IYG meeting to host a fun and interactive "Kahoot!" trivia game about the interconnected histories of South Asian and Black people and their pursuits for justice! IYG members also invited their parents to join in on the game which only made the experience so much more fun. Through this experience families had a chance to learn about the shared histories we have in advocating and fighting for racial justice. IYG and SAYAA look forward to collaborating soon on these important conversations and educating ourselves on how we can be better advocates for racial justice and stand in solidarity with our peers in this work!
