On September 7, 2016, a webinar was hosted to launch the Asian American Racial Justice Toolkit.
In the last few years, there has been a growing need to address racial justice and equity issues in working class Asian Pacific American communities. The toolkit highlights the work and efforts of 15 grassroots organizations that organize in working class Asian communities from across the country. Members include Asian refugee families, low-income workers, working class queer and trans youth from New York to Madison to San Francisco.
The following speakers presented during the launch around their experiences with the issues and how specific organizations are using the trainings and tools from this project:
Sarath Suong, Providence Youth Student Movement (Providence ,RI)
Ashley Uyeda, Khmer Girls in Action (Long Beach, CA)
Inhe Choi, Korean American Resource and Cultural Center (Chicago, IL)
Cathy Dang, CAAAV: Organizing Asian Communities (New York, NY)
