Misplaced Shame of Sexual Assault with Asian Americans — October 15, 2018

Misplaced Shame of Sexual Assault with Asian Americans

“Statistics for sexual assault in Asian American communities are hard to come by, but a study by Asian Pacific Institute on Gender Based Violence found that anywhere from 21-55 percent of Asian American women report facing physical and or sexual violence in their lifetime. If we continue to create a culture of shame around survivors, less and less Asian American will report these incidents publically and we will not know how deeply this issue affects our communities.

We need to disrupt and transform our culture so that reporting sexual assault is not shameful. We need to raise our men and boys to respect women and know they will be held accountable for their action if they assault anyone. I want women and girls in the Asian community to live in a new time where sexual assault is unacceptable and has consequences for perpetrators. We need to disrupt culture and create an environment that allows survivors to feel safe, heard, and believed when they tell their stories.”

L.A. Weekly:

Technology keeps trying to take paper away from us, but man can’t live by computers and mobile devices alone. For the past 10 years, the Los Angeles Printers Fair has attracted thousands of visitors who use paper as both a necessity and an art form. This weekend, 80 vendors and independent artists, including the Angels Gate Cultural Center, Los Angeles Printmaking Society and Otis College of Art & Design Lab Press, will be selling letterpress and paper art, everything from antique books to posters to memorabilia. New this year is an appearance by Chris Fritton, a printer and poet who visited 120 letterpress shops across the country and produced 15,000 prints, which he chronicles in his new book, The Itinerant Printer. The schedule also features tours of the International Printing Museum, which was founded in 1988 and houses one of the largest antique printing presses in America, a special exhibit on the fair’s last decade, demonstrations, and printing and paper-making workshops.

About the LA Printers Fair

The Los Angeles Printers Fair at The International Printing Museum in Carson, CA celebrates a decade of bringing the best of letterpress, book arts, and the paper arts to the LA area. With the backdrop of the world’s largest collection of working antique presses, the LA Printers Fair annually brings together 80 artistic vendors and 1,700 visitors to experience the creative worlds of handmade books and beautiful printing.

Exhibitors include many of the greatest letterpress and printmaking artists in the Southwest and beyond, offering custom posters, printings, hand-printed cards, memorabilia, hand-made paper, and antiquarian books for sale. Throughout the Museum’s galleries visitors can print their own keepsakes on antique letterpresses, have their name cast in printer’s type, make paper by hand, or even screen print their own shirt! All proceeds from the fair go to The International Printing Museum, a non-profit institution dedicated to the heritage, preservation, and advancement of the printing arts.

Time Out says:

Typography aficionados, take note: The annual LA Printers Fair is back to fulfill all of your paper fantasies.

Plus, the event is home to “The Largest Letterpress Swap Meet in the West,” with letterpress supplies, wood and metal type, ink and presses. If you’re more interested in looking than buying, spend the afternoon scoping out the demos and tours throughout the museum galleries.
