This week, we have an eclectic show looking at Asian Community Mental Health Services campaign to join SEIU 1021. Then we take a critical look at the nonprofit industrial complex through a queer and trans people of color cabaret. And finally, we wrap up the show by exploring the Day of the Dead tradition and Asian American artists Choppy Oshiro and Cece Carpio who are participating in the Day of the Dead exhibitions at SOMArts Cultural Center and Oakland Museum of California.
