Book Talk: “Auntie Sewing Squad Guide To Mask Making, Radical Care, and Racial Justice”

January 29 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Free

In the new book, Auntie Sewing Squad Guide to Mask Making, Radical Care, and Racial Justice, editors and contributors will talk about their fight to distribute masks to underserved communities, where depleted mask supplies left thousands unprotected against the COVID19 pandemic.

In March 2020, when the US government failed to provide personal protective gear during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Auntie Sewing Squad emerged. Founded by performance artist Kristina Wong, the mutual-aid group sewed face masks with a bold social justice mission: to protect the most vulnerable and most neglected.
