What does intersectional feminist organizing in Asian American communities look like in practice? How can Asian American feminists build a truly inclusive movement?
Join us for the third installment of NAPAWF*NYC’s Asian American Feminism series, where you will hear from several leading Asian American feminist organizers who are currently engaged in long term struggles for social justice in areas such as immigrant and refugee rights, affordable housing, domestic violence, surveillance and police violence, and workers’ rights. Speakers will share their perspectives on what lies ahead for movement building work and offer insights on how individuals can contribute to existing campaigns in New York.
Featuring Cathy Dang (CAAAV), Shalini Somayaji (Sakhi for South Asian Women), Clara Yoon (PFLAG NYC), Vijou Bryant (APICHA Community Health Center/ Gabriela NY), and Chhaya Chhoum (Mekong NYC ). Moderated by Vivian Truong (A/P/A Institute Visiting Scholar).
Q&A with audience to follow the panel discussion. We encourage you to share your burning questions and thoughts with us on social media.
