Call for bakers, and Desert Nite (Boston Asian American social justice group fundraiser) announcement!

I’m currently helping to plan a fundraiser for four Asian American social justice organizations in Boston. It’s the Fifth Annual Dessert Tasting Fundraiser, organized by Asian American Resource Workshop, Asian Pacific Islander Movement, Boston Korean Adoptees, Inc., and the Coalition for Asian Pacific American Youth. It will be held on Saturday, April 16, 2011, from 7-10pm at the Vietnamese American Community Center in Dorchester. The proceeds of the event will benefit the four organizations’ social justice work this year in the Greater Boston Asian American community.

You can find more information about the event here, including ticket information, etc.
