Black Asian Solidarity: Building a Multiracial Movement
This Asian America Pacific Islander Heritage Month, in addition to celebrating the contributions of the AAPI community to our nation, we’re also discussing how greater solidarity between the AAPI and Black community could advance the collective liberation of all people of color with a #BlackAsianSolidarity Instagram Live series hosted by Advancement Project National Office Executive Director Judith Browne Dianis.
We know that a world where people of color are free and safe will come through the work of a multiracial movement for social justice. Ahead of the conversation, learn more on how Black & AAPI solidarity has positively changed our nation. Explore narrative tools like our COVID-19 Social Justice Phrase Guide, created in collaboration with the Asian American Pacific Islander American Health Forum (AAPIAHF), to learn how language can dispel myths and combat bigotry around the coronavirus pandemic.
Watch Executive Director Judith Browne Dianis, nationally recognized equity and inclusion expert, Simran Jeet Singh, national immigration leader and Executive Director of the Angel Island Immigration Station Foundation Ed Tepporn, and actress, producer, comedienne and philanthropist Jiaoying Summers discuss how solidarity between the AAPI and Black community could advance the collective liberation of all people of color in the videos below.
