“That’s Not Love” Talent Show
Our annual “That’s not Love” talent show provides Oakland youth a platform to showcase their talents and raise awareness on teen dating violence, sexual assault, and gender-based violence among our communities. The purpose of this talent show is to build community among Oakland youth, while also promoting health relationships, gender equity, and violence-prevention.
Asian Pacific Islander Activism Community Teach- Out (API-act) is a week long workshop and training series dedicated to educating ourselves, healing from oppressive forces, and emerging as outspoken leaders within our communities. The aim is to build community among peers and become invigorated to join the movement in ending oppression. The workshop series consists of activities, field trips, and training, for youth to learn about community work, ethnic studies, and to connect them with various community partners across the SF and East Bay.
That’s Not Love: Understanding Teen Dating Violence
Our workshop, That’s Not Love, emphasizes the power and control dynamic within domestic relationships. We define consent and dating violence, analyze toxic relationship examples in conventional media, combat myths surrounding domestic violence, and review our rights and resources in a relationship. We examine the different aspects of abuse while learning how to break the cycle of violence that has been institutionalized and normalized in our society. Through collaboration, we acknowledge intersectionality within different communities and demand large-scale awareness to help prevent domestic violence.
