I found out recently about a cool organization here in Los Angeles. It’s called the Multiracial Americans of Southern California (MASC) and they are created to provide community to Mixed people and families, as well as to educate the larger community about Mixed people and their issues.
Wonderful. It warmed my heart just to look at photos on their site of some of the forums they’ve had, seeing groups of Mixed kids all together. I look forward to getting my kids involved, and being involved myself. Even in a place like L.A. where seeing Mixed people is common, it is so important for kids and people with Mixed heritage to have people around them that can share their experiences and can make sure they know they are a unique and special group in our emerging society.
Be sure to check out their website.
