Matcha Meet Up (JASA)
Northwestern JASA (Japanese American Student Association) is looking to fund a newly created community-building project of ours, titled Matcha Meet-Ups. At our Matcha Meet-Ups, we hope to engage in discussions relevant to Japanese and Asian American related experiences, culture, and build a safe and welcoming community. Starting Matcha Meet-Ups, beginning in the spring quarter of 2019, we hope to create a space that will foster a community of Japanese Americans, as well as increase the diversity and cultural awareness on campus as a whole. In doing this, we will be able to work toward accomplishing our organization’s mission.
This series of events will be free and open to all those who are interested. We hope that the Matcha Meet-Ups will become an extension of JASA’s mission—bringing together more than just Northwestern undergraduates—we hope to create a welcoming and open space for Japanese American community members, graduate students, faculty, and beyond.
