SAMEAPI Awareness Now!

Mills College Southeast Asian/Middle Eastern/Asian Pacific Islanders (SAMEAPI) Awareness Now! (SAMEAPI) happens every April and is sponsored by the Ethnic Studies Program in the Department of Race, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, and the Associated Students of Mills College. SAMEAPI student organization(s) plan the month of activities with support from faculty and staff. We are looking forward to spring 2021 events, possibly online, given the Bay Area COVID-19 shelter-in-place order.
