Comic on Mixed-Race Marriage
Our “So…What Are You, Anyway?” (SWAYA) conference had a great turnout! We had a wonderful time listening to all of our speakers and discussion leaders and we loved getting to hear about everyone’s experiences as well as getting to know everyone. If you attended the conference please feel free to follow this blog or follow us on twitter (@harvardhapa) to know more about next year’s SWAYA as well as other events that we organize throughout the year. If you want to learn more about the conference or see how it was received, read the Crimson’s article on our keynote, actress and author Diane Farr, and on the conference.

Donate to Harvard HAPA -
The Harvard Half-Asian People’s Association was founded in 1995 to foster a multiracial community on campus and to increase awareness of mixed race identity and issues.
We are still very much alive and active today and would appreciate any donations of any amount - $1, $5, $20…$1 million? (kidding!) But really, any little bit will help our organization grow and throw even more cool events about multiracial identity!
