Join OMCA for our 21st annual Lunar New Year Celebration as we welcome in the Year of the Tiger and explore the shared connections between the diverse Asian cultures of the Bay Area.

We’re also holding space for our AAPI communities to come together and uplift each other with both in-person and virtual healing circles, facilitated by Lotus Awakens.
