EOP: Silent Love
November 13, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Anacapa Dorms Main Lounge
During this event, we will explore the identity and intergenerational relationships within the Asian and Pacific Islander (API) community. Often times, API parents and family members display their love and affection for their children in a more conservative manner, and not as outwardly or physically apparent compared to parents of other racial backgrounds. API families show their love for their children in subtle ways like cooking, cleaning, asking their kids if they have enough money for food and how is school going. They do things rather than say things like ‘I love you.’ The event aims to allow students to gain a better insight on the different cultural ways of expressing love. As children of immigrants, first generation college students and people of color, it is important to highlight that sometimes subtle ways of expressing love says a lot more than actually saying it.
