How do AAPIs resist? Sign on, stand up and fight back!

Sign up to join the AAPI National Week of Action, October 7-14.



Recently, the Trump administration has advanced racist nativist attacks on immigrants by rescinding DACA, imposing a travel ban on refugees and six Muslim-majority countries, and supporting drastic immigration restrictions through the proposed RAISE Act. Trump has even essentially called neo-Nazis, the KKK, and white supremacists "fine people" in the aftermath of violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.

From xenophobia and Islamophobia to acts of racial violence, it is evident all oppression is connected and we can no longer continue to have single-issue campaigns and platforms because we don’t live single-issue lives. Unfortunately, we also have to recognize that segments of our own community have worked against social justice; for example protesting sanctuary cities, ethnic data disaggregation, and affirmative action, et cetera.

All of these unjust acts negatively affect Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, and other marginalized communities. In the wake of all of this, we may ask: What now?




When our communities are under attack, what do we do? WE STAND UP, FIGHT BACK!

Collectively, we have a huge opportunity to make our voices heard in the public discussion on what is happening. During October 7 to 14, help lead and participate in the AAPI National Week of Action, alongside AAPI Voices and over 20 community organizations around the country!

Let's try to organize at least 100 events nationwide for this week of action and solidarity for justice. Let's make a powerful united statement as Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders who care about justice. When our communities are under attack, we stand up and fight back!
