Sunday Jump is a community open mic series in Historic Filipinotown, Los Angeles. Every first Sunday, we provide a safe space for artists to share their poetry, music, and more. In order to ensure a welcoming space for everyone, we have two community guidelines:
Our organization’s leaders are award-winning poets and community activists who have shared their work across the nation.
Historic Filipinotown is the heart of our cultural community. With over 400,000 Filipinos living in Los Angeles, 10,000 are in this area. “Historic” can be misconstrued as the community being a relic of the past – yes, we have a tremendous history, but Sunday Jump exists to declare that we are here and now. There are many family-run businesses, neighborhood markets, and community spaces that endure, and Sunday Jump is but one of these sites that illustrates the freshness and vibrancy of our enclave.
As Filipino-Americans, we acknowledge the marginalization of our people's history, such as our unrecognized WWII veterans, erased struggles of comfort women, and forgotten agricultural workers of the labor movement. In recognition of this history, we aim to provide a safe space for all marginalized voices to take space and speak out.
