Her love for the company and its contemporary technique, Yorchha, took hold while she was a dance major at the University of MinnesotaIn 2018. Kealoha was named ADT’s Artistic Associate and Co-Leader of its St Paul home, the Shawngram Institute for Performance & Social Justice, where she teaches community classes, hosts events, and leads company rehearsals.
Olivia Levins Holden is a queer, mixed Boricua muralist, organizer, mixed media artist and arts educator, born and residing in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Her work translates community conversations and people’s history into collaborative public art, explores healing through expression of complexity, duality, and her own experience of multiple identities, lineages, languages and places. She strives to explore many ways the arts can tell our stories, plant seeds, and combat toxic narratives and decolonize through truth-telling.

Why: As Muslims and Jews, we’re socialized to believe negative stereotypes about each other. We need to back up and better understand the systems of oppression– Islamophobia and antisemitism– that drive those false narratives, and work to break them down together, in relationship with each other.
What: A space to reflect, share and learn about Islamophobia and antisemitism as experienced by those who identify as Muslim or Jewish women.* (*We know the term “woman” can be incomplete. We’re going to center the voices of anyone who has been conditioned with expectations around Muslim or Jewish femininity.)
If you self-identify as a Muslim or Jewish woman* and are willing to share your experiences with Islamophobia and antisemitism, your voices will be centered. This will be an opportunity to link arms and make sense of these systems of oppression together.
If you do NOT identify as a Muslim or Jewish woman*, you are invited to listen and learn. Your voice will not be centered in the space, but your listening and allyship is critical for our shared liberation. We appreciate your desire to learn alongside us.
Dinner from 5:30-6:00 pm, Workshop from 6:00 – 8:30pm
Where- Islamic Center of Minnesota
Space is limited, and participants will be intentionally selected to build a room of mixed identities and experiences. Please fill out this Google form to apply for a spot. You will be notified by no later than Wed, 12/11 if you have been accepted as a participant.
Muslim and Jewish Women of Minnesota is on a mission to build our shared power to make change in the progressive policy areas in which our beliefs and values intersect.

This edition of #SupportLocalHustle BIPOC pop up will be held at Gandhi Mahal (3009 27th Ave S) on Saturday, December 21, 11a-4p
. Everyone is welcome at this free event! CASH ONLY please.
#SupportLocalHustle popups are an opportunity to support local BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) artists, bakers, creatives, and makers. We have a charitable cause you can donate to at the door, good vibes, and beautiful wares.
This event is free to enter, cash ONLY, and open to all folks who would like to contribute to a respectful space explicitly against sexism, transphobia (please don’t assume our pronouns!), and racism.
—– ABOUT THE Vendors —–
All of these vendors are proudly BIPOC. Some of us are queer, trans, disabled, chronically ill. We recognize that there are many market spaces that are not welcoming to us, and there are systems in place that exclude us from being successful in many spaces. This pop up is an answer to that! We want to provide opportunities for our beautiful, hardworking, creative selves to succeed as a way of celebrating and uplifting our BIPOC community.
Vendors will be selling their art, baked goods, pickles, and jewelry, among other treasures. Goods are mostly $1-$30. Many offer sliding scale pricing.
—– ABOUT THE Space—–
This event will take place at Gandhi Mahal (3009 27th Ave S). The entrance to Gandhi Mahal Restaurant’s community room is on 27th Ave S, south of Lake St., on the east side of the street, near the intersection of Minnehaha and Lake. Enter through the community room entrance, not the restaurant entrance. It is accessible by Blue Line LRT, 7, 21, 53 buses, there is bike parking and metered car parking on 27th Ave S, with additional car parking across Minnehaha.
The nearest ATM is located inside Minnehaha Liquors and Nuevo Rodeo. Please bring cash for vendors.
The space has no steps to get in, and one single stall (no-/all-gender) bathroom with handrails. Navigating inside the space with a wheelchair would be very tight, but doable.
