About

We need people of color, women, LGBTQ folks, students, immigrants, and white allies more than ever to join our resistance. As a organization, join us by signing the Joint Statement of AAPI Principles, or as an individual by signing the the #NotYourModelMinority Pledge. Stand up for freedom and a vision free from hate today.

#AAPIsResist is a coalition of Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) national, local, and student organizations committed to strengthening our organizing and advocacy in resistance to the administration’s hateful, discriminatory, and harmful actions and its broader effects on our communities. Tag @AAPIsResist on Twitter!

Asian American Organizing Project
Asian Americans Advancing Justice – Atlanta
Asian Pacific Americans for Progress
