Social media and the internet has been an amazing way to connect with other people and families that are mixed-race and multiracial. But it’s also super-meaningful to get together in person. Here are some ways that we have found like-minded folks and created great friendships. So please check out these 4 creative ways to connect with other mixed folks and families:
Mixed Remixed Festival
The Mixed Remixed Festival is an annual cultural arts festival held each June in Los Angeles, CA. This year will be the 4th Annual Mixed Remixed Festival. We hope that you will join us. It’s the largest gathering of multiracial and mixed-race people in the country.
Mixed Remixed On-Line Book Club
We started the Mixed Remixed On-Line Book Club last fall and it’s been a ton of fun. Each month we connect in a discussion that takes place over the phone and on-line to discuss a book about the mixed race experience. Keep the conversation going the whole month with our Goodreads book club.
Loving Day, the brainchild of Ken Tanabe, is celebrated each June — all of the country! Check out the organization’s website for more information about what’s happening locally.
Los Angeles Farmer’s Markets
Okay, I’m kidding. But I’m kind of not kidding. Ever notice how many multiracial families and people go to farmer’s markets? I think we should do a big meet-up some time!
