You saw it on social media and now you can have your own. We have a very limited supply of this shirt that was in so much demand. “Being Multiracial Means Being All of Me” is now available in limited sizes while supplies last. We will consider a second run depending on demand.
MASC depends on volunteers to help out on projects from time to time. Next February 24 thru 26 the largest academic/activist gathering of the mixed race community, the Critical Mixed Race Studies (CMRS) conference will be in LA and MASC is on the site committee. Be a part of this movement and see history in the making up close. Below is our recent most pressing needs for the conference and other events:
Conference volunteers to staff registration and info table at CMRS
Graphic artist to design poster for CMRS
Video, sound, and mixing board equipment to borrow for Color Conversation live stream in November.
MASC representatives Thomas Lopez, Nancy Brown, and Athena Asklipiadis will be speaking at Cal Sate Northridge this semester as a part of Professor Teresa Williams-Leon’s class AAS 355 Biracial/Multiracial Identity. Topics will range from community organizing, to marrow donation, to the Census. MASC is available to speak at your school, business, or other group! Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
