The event will be affordable, as vendors each will have at least one item that is $5 or less. Vendor list TBA!

For workshops, they will have classes in self defense, safety, first aid, yoga, and children’s programming so parents can be free to shop! If you missed either of their self defense classes, they will have practice pepper sprays on hand all day for you to practice in ISS’s backyard! Additionally, for children’s programming, you MUST RSVP your child(ren)‘s attendance. They need to know how many kids and their age ranges to provide the best program for them as possible.

ISS is a community-based non-profit organization dedicated to improving the conditions of underserved immigrants and children of immigrants, especially those with roots in Manhattan’s Chinatown/Lower East Side. They provide interdisciplinary programs and services for individuals of all ages and families to develop and restore their agency and collaboratively enhance the well-being of our community. In partnership with Asian American Federation (AAF)’s Hope Against Hate campaign, we aim to deliver valuable skills to many who feel unsafe in their own neighborhoods. From 9/11, to COVID-19, to the anti-China rhetoric that continues to this day, the pan-Asian American community knows all too well the violence inflicted upon communities in the U.S in response to international conflicts and tensions.
