We are proud to be members of the following coalitions and collaborations:

Criminalization of People of Color

For people of color and working families, public safety is a major concern, particularly in tough economic times. But proposals to increase immigration enforcement or to indiscriminately lock up third-time offenders for 25 years do more to target and victimize people of color and immigrants than to truly improve public safety. Those who benefit most are private corporations connected to the prison industry. Asian Americans suffer along with Latinos and other people of color from the culture of criminalization, as we are treated as alien suspects within our own communities. But Asian Americans are less likely to be targets of police violence than Black Americans, who are killed on a daily basis. As people of color whose pathway to justice has so often been paved by the Black-led Civil Rights Movement, we have a responsibility to stand up for justice today and to building the movement of #Asians4BlackLives.
