What does intersectional feminist organizing in our communities look like in practice? As Asian American feminists, how do we help build a truly inclusive movement? 

Join us for the third installment of our 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.
