The reading will feature prose, poetry, and music. Performers include: Dickson Lam, David Maduli, and youth from the grassroots organization Serve the People (STP). Proceeds will benefit STP. No one turned away for lack of funds.

He has received degrees from UC Berkeley and Harvard Graduate School of Education, and is an alumni of Voices of our Nations Arts Foundation (VONA) summer workshop for writers of color. He is in the process of completing his debut collection of poems.

*Serve the People is committed to the liberation of Asian Pacific Islander communities by organizing to address the inequalities that we face through political and cultural education, self healing, building unity, and fighting for social justice for all people.
