BRIDGE for Fridge: A Mutual Aid Event

Presented by A/P/A BRIDGE. Sponsored by the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU.


A/P/A BRIDGE will host a teach-in centered around NYU’s complicity in the gentrification of Chinatown and displacement of its residents. This event invites all members of the NYU community to learn about the histories and needs of neighboring communities, and collect food for Chinatown Community Fridge and Pantry: A Student-Run Chinatown Community Fridge. The event will include presentations by Rochelle Kwan (Chinatown Records) and Michelle Shi (Chinatown Community Fridge and Pantry) followed by an audience engagement activity. Refreshments from a local restaurant will be served.

We welcome donations of non-perishable food, menstrual products, and/or PPE from attendees. 

A/P/A BRIDGE was created by Asian/Pacific/American (A/P/A) student leaders through the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU to cultivate “A/P/A” as a political identity. The group serves to foster spaces for the discussion of race, identity, and politics; and to develop community organizing and leadership skills.
