"This dumpling fundraiser is really to create an environment in which we are fueled by the anger that we felt because of these attacks."
- Well, an upcoming fundraiser is counting on food to bring people together.
- Yeah. It often does. A virtual cook along is set for Saturday to raise money for Good, Good Eats, an Oakland group that helps bridge divides between the Black and Asian communities. Participants will learn to make Chinese dumplings. A co-organizer says the event was inspired by feelings of helplessness and anger over the recent attacks in Chinatown.
ADRIAN CHANG: This dumpling fundraiser is to really create an environment in which we are fueled by the anger that we've all felt because of these attacks and the increased racism and tension between two communities, but then put it into a place where we're all sharing a space together in a spirit of unity and cooking together and eating together.
- The dumplings for unity event will include discussions about Lunar New Year and Black History Month.
