TASC The mission of TASC is to foster appreciation and awareness of Asian culture through education, performance and choreography. The mission of The Asian Student Center for Choreography is to foster appreciation and awareness of Asian culture through education, performance and choreography.

We believe that people of any background or skill level can learn the technique and choreography found within the Asian performing arts. We intend to hold open workshops on campus driven by the learning goals of the members, and we plan to perform at various events around campus and the surrounding Five College area.

“I’ve been practicing some new tricks (new for me), like around the world into suicide, underleg slip through, Excalibur umbrella, and helicopter. Here is a video of me doing a cracked helicopter and whip catching ice cream. It’s tough practicing without you guys around to help each other, but I will keep on trying!”

We share our grief, frustration, and outrage at the murder of George Floyd at the hands of four police officers in Minnesota last week, along with the deaths of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, and so many other Black lives that have been lost in acts of racial violence. These murders were not isolated events but propelled by systemic racism that has been so deeply enrooted for centuries.

There is zero tolerance for the racism and police brutality that exists to this day. We at TASC embrace members from all backgrounds and stand with the Black community to speak out against any form of injustice and oppression. As a student led organization on campus, it is our duty and obligation to speak up and act up.

We must educate ourselves, recognize and check our own biases and privileges, and take action against racial injustice and state-sanctioned violence. Some of many ways to support include: signing petitions for justice, contacting local government officials, and donating if you are able to. Please refer to the resources in the link below if you want to know how to help. This list is by no means exhaustive and includes just a few of many organizations and resources out there.

Continually reach out to these resources and beyond, educate yourself, engage in conversations about racism and privilege, listen to Black voices and uplift them, and register to vote to make sure the changes that are long overdue are made.

We understand this is a difficult time for many, and know that we are always here for you. It takes all of us actively calling for and making change in order to work towards a world that is just and kind to all.

Black Lives Matter.

Sincerely,
TASC
