I’ll be co-leading a workshop on Music & Activism alongside hip hop activist Chee Malabar at the 3rd annual Bay Area Solidarity Summer (BASS) taking place July 25-29, 2013 in Berkeley, California. Desi youth from across California converge at a 5-day residential summer camp in Berkeley to learn about progressive social justice issues affecting South Asians, art, history, and leadership skills. BASS alumni often call the program “inspiring” and “life-changing.” 

BASS is open to youth 15 to 21 years of age and of South Asian heritage. The summer camp will include workshops, panels, a field trip, and lots of opportunities for arts and activism. BASS is an environment where Desi youth can feel safe, supported, and inspired. The program is run by a diverse group of volunteers of South Asian descent working to increase civic engagement and social justice education for South Asian youth.
