Everything Everywhere

May 19th, 7:30 p.m., SOPAC:  TICKETS HERE

As part of AAPI month, SOMA Justice presents Everything Everywhere All At Once, a glorious, mind-bending, emotional experience that everyone is talking about. The film explores universal themes of family, identity, struggle, possibilities and purpose. It will be followed by a short, socio-cultural discussion led by Dr. Mia Charlene White. Please be advised that the movie is rated R for graphic violence, language and dark subject matter. You've never seen anything like it before. It is quite a trip. Doors open at 7 pm.

Sunday, May 22 at 4:30 pm. Register here: TICKETS

New Jersey just became the second state in the country to mandate Asian American Pacitic Islander Studies be included in the K-12 school curriculums. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about the vital contributions to our world made by Asian Americans.

Meet Jeff Yang and Phil Yu, two of the authors of RISE: A Pop History of Asian America from the Nineties to Now live at SOPAC Loft on

RISE is a love letter to and for Asian Americans—a vivid scrapbook of voices, emotions, and memories from an era in which our culture was forged and transformed, and a way to preserve both the headlines and the intimate conversations that have shaped our community into who we are today.
