Learn About Us

Movement Hub is a centralized platform created to amplify the on-the-ground activism and organizing within Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities across the country. We offer resources for and by AAPI community organizations to promote cross racial unity and civic participation necessary for realizing systemic and structural change. This hub was built by the AAPI Civic Engagement Fund with support from the UCLA Center for Neighborhood Knowledge.

We understand there is a longstanding need for AAPIs – as a community of color and predominantly immigrant and refugee population – to become informed, activated, and engaged, particularly in the area of civic participation. Yet, AAPI voter registration and turnout rates have historically been disproportionately low. The Fund fosters a culture of civic participation within AAPI communities by supporting the growth of AAPI groups as organizational movement and power building leaders that achieve specific policy, systems, and transformational change.

Our Core Purpose
The Movement Hub is a digital resource for movements led by and for AAPI communities working together towards justice and shared liberation.

Our Principles

Our three working principles for the Movement Hub reflect our philosophy and operations.
  1. Transparency: We will share why we create and curate the content that we do with our users and members of the Shared Liberation Network.
  2. Accessibility: We aim to make the Movement Hub’s content accessible to all users, regardless of ability. As we continue to evolve we commit to investing in resources to make this a low barrier site.
  3. Community: We built this site for community because we know there are real people who are impacted, real people who are working on the ground for change, and real people who helped built this site. We will continue to center community in building the Movement Hub.

The Shared Liberation Network

The AAPI Civic Engagement Fund supports the Shared Liberation Network (SLN), a set of AAPI social justice organizations across the country that seek to advance racial equity and intersectional justice. The SLN was formed in response to the rise of anti-Asian racism and violence during the global pandemic, and at a time when the racial justice uprisings called to question the role of the AAPI community. SLN member groups have come together to build community power, share strategies and resources, and explore an agenda for a more inclusive, just, and equitable world.
