This toolkit is a project of love from the grassroots, from and by Asian American communities. As Asian Americans, we believe that our liberation is tied to Black liberation and we continue to dream about a world where all of our people will be free.
This toolkit reflects our analysis of the interconnectedness of issues and constituencies within the structures of white supremacy. In addition to workshop modules, we offer some of our experiences and lessons learned in working to dismantle structural racism. We know that this is long-term work and requires transformational organizing to make racial justice a reality. As organizers, we start with how our members experience racism in their daily lives, and have seen firsthand the power of building intellectual connections between mass incarceration and deportation, between human trafficking and labor exploitation, and between gentrification and the criminalization of youth. Demographic change and an economy that has failed the 99% continue to drive white racial anxiety, bigotry and xenophobia. In response, we continue to anchor our politics in the material conditions of our lives, consolidating our bases and building shared commitments toward a movement for broad-scale liberation.
The importance of Asian American grassroots organizing lies in the urgency of building the ranks of people across race who are engaged in the long-term struggle toward a different future, toward freedom and democracy for all of humanity.
