Adhikaar, together with writers Meera Nair and Muna Gurung, and the creative writing experts at Kundiman will present “A Letter Home,” a dynamic evening of spoken word and storytelling from Nepali and Tibetan women. They will present autobiographical letters written in response to Nepal’s 2015 earthquake that creatively express their experiences as women, immigrants, domestic workers, daughters, mothers, and more.

This communal presentation of art is designed not only to record Asian American history but also generate a dialogue to spark change.The readers are all active members at Adhikaar, which serves and organizes the Nepali speaking immigrant and refugee population in New York. A program funded in part by Asian Women's Giving Circle and Poets and Writers Inc.
