Event description

Description

When being mixed race is more than just an identity, it's a matter of life and death.


Mixed Match is an important human story told from the perspective of mixed race blood cancer patients who are forced to reflect on their multiracial identities and complex genetics as they struggle with a seemingly impossible search to find bone marrow donors, all while exploring what role race plays in medicine. With the multiracial community becoming one of the fastest growing demographics in North America, being mixed race is no longer just about an identity, it can be a matter of life and death.

Join NAAAP San Jose as we bring attention to the need for mixed race bone marrow donors. We will be screeing the film, speaking with director Jeff Chiba Stearns for a Q&A, and holding a marrow donor drive with the Asian American Donor Program and Hapa Marrow Match.

The event is free with light refreshments. However, we are asking for a small donation of $10 to offset the cost of screening. Seating is limited so be sure to get a ticket if you plan to attend!
