Activism and Dim Sum

On January 30th, North Star Fund celebrated the Year of the Rabbit with a Lunar New Year Dim Sum at Chinatown’s stylish Red Egg.

The intimate gathering of 40 friends featured a compelling discussion of community organizing in New York City’s diverse Asian American/Pacific Islander communities. Oona Chatterjee, North Star Board Chair and Co-Director of Make the Road New York moderated a conversation between Steve Choi, Executive Director of MinKwon Center for Community Action and Luna Ranjit, Executive Director of Adhikaar for Human Rights and Social Justice. The discussion continued informally at each table over dim sum. Guests were invited to reflect upon the conversation with their thoughts on the impact of North Star’s funding, and the direction of community organizing in Asian communities in general.
