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.”

 Watch the emotional video of their arrest here, and be sure to support them on Facebook here!

New York’s Plate By Plate is happening on September 26 at the Metropolitan Pavilion! Enjoy some of NYC’s top chefs and restaurants at this five star tasting event while helping the Asian American community!

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

"Over the course of history, each new medium to arrive has had the potential to enable everyday people to push back on power, to produce and distribute authentic messages coming from our communities, undisturbed by a corporate filter. And each has repeatedly been killed. For each medium - radio, television, and print - there was the promise of people-controlled media. Yet through media consolidation and barriers-to-entry created by larger corporations to prevent new players from entering, the promise was undone." - James Rucker, colorofchange.org
Today is Internet Slowdown Day, but don’t forget that net neutrality is about so much more than fast Netflix streaming.

We know the internet is a crucial outlet for our stories. We know that without a free and open internet, content delivery will slow. And, without regulations in place, certain content can be stopped at the source.
We need a free & open internet to ensure that we can respond, together, to violence. Let the FCC know what the internet means to you. Raise your voice for the public internet.
