As another banner year for AAPF winds down, we thank you, our supporters, for helping to keep the fire for justice burning. Your encouragement and solidarity have invigorated our fight during a time of global upheaval.
The wind hasn’t always been at our back, but with your support, we’ve continued to move arts, action and activism towards intersectional justice. And we’ve seen many of you there.
This fall, we brought our passion for arts and activism to the Women’s Building Community Block Party. As part of our ongoing #SayHerName campaign, our presentation paired the rousing vocals of AAPF artist-in-residence Abby Dobson with dramatic readings of words from family members of Meagan Hockaday, Michelle Cusseaux, India Kager, India Beatty, Tanisha Anderson, and Shelly Frey--all of whom are Black female victims of racist state violence.
Earlier this month in Atlanta, we organized and hosted Reconstructing Our Democracy: A Midterms Post-Mortem and Call to Action. The event brought academics and activists together at a pivotal battleground state in the midterm elections. Eminent thinkers from a variety of backgrounds collaborated to develop actionable solutions to some of the nation’s most pressing dilemmas.
And we’re not slowing down. Tomorrow evening, we’re hosting Asian Americans and Affirmative Action: Understanding SFFA v. Harvard, a moderated panel geared toward dispelling myths about the effect of race-conscious admissions policies on the Asian American community.
