Asian Americans being involved in civil rights is neither new or old…it just is. “Rather than saying it’s a new generation who are more progressive or not progressive, I’d say, it’s a new generation who are more politicized,” says Vijay Prashad, Professor of International Studies and South Asian History. -AW

Fast food workers struggling for a wage of $15 an hour and the right to unionize participated in a nonviolent civil disobedience action last week.
This is Emily Nguyen (ponytail) and Kalia Vang (visor). Emily is 20 years-old and a sophomore at Sacramento City College. She’s worked in fast food for a year and a half and makes California minimum wage ($9 an hour). She says, “I’m just working to breathe, to stay alive. I’m not really living life. We won’t stop till we meet our destination, till our wages go up.”

All proceeds will go towards the Henry Street Settlement’s Asian Bi-Cultural services. Mental health is a dangerous epidemic in our communities, and with yesterday being National Suicide Prevention Week, what better time to bring awareness to and donate resources to a fantastic organization?
On this anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, this conversation between Sikh Captain America (Vishavjit Singh) and a 9/11 first responder he happened to meet on the subway is a great read.
They don’t just talk about 9/11 or the work Sgt. Mercy was doing, they talk about Balibar Singh Sodi, Ferguson, implicit bias, and the psychological effects of violence. It’s hopeful. But grounded in the present. - CM
