We are 15 grassroots organizations that organize in working class Asian communities from across the country. Our bases include Asian refugee families, low-income workers, working class queer and trans youth from New York to Madison to San Francisco. As the Movement for Black Lives has swept across the country in the past few years, our organizations have been on the forefront of addressing racial justice and equity issues in working class Asian Pacific American communities. During our launch, we’ll present our toolkit and some of our lessons from these experiences.

The Toolkit is a projected hosted by Asian American Pacific Islanders for Civic Empowerment, which is a California statewide formation whose purpose is to advance state politics, campaigns and other issues that support low-income AAPIs by building statewide AAPI civic engagement infrastructure and serving as a resource for emerging AAPI organizations. The founding organizations are APEN, CPA, KRC, and FAJ.

The Toolkit project includes the following organizations: Asian Pacific Environmental Network / Chinese Progressive Association SF / Korean Resource Center / Filipino Advocates for Justice / CAAAV: Organizing Asian Communities / PrYSM / DRUM / Khmer Girls in Action / 1Love Movement / AYPAL / VAYLA New Orleans / Freedom Inc / Korean Resource Community Center / Mekong NYC / VietLEAD

We thank Evelyn and Walter Haas, Jr. Fund, Rosenberg Foundation, Wallace Alexander Gerbode Foundation, The California Endowment, The California Wellness Foundation, Unbound Philanthropy for their generous support of this project. Special thanks to the Friends Doing Good giving circle and National CAPACD.
