Defending Asian students

Asian Americans United December 2, 2013:


On December 3rd, 2009, 26 Asian immigrant students were attacked both inside and directly outside of South Philadelphia High School. The students boycotted school for eight days, demanding accountability from school leadership. AAU worked with a strong and passionate team of allies to support the students. Most importantly, the students were unified, they stood strong and they didn’t back down…and...

Asian Americans United - 28th Anniversary

Asian Americans United November 19, 2013:

Cheers and thanks to all who volunteered (Go AAU, go!), sponsored, hosted, donated, presented, emceed, deejayed, cooked, mixed sangria, performed and celebrated at AAU's memorable 28th anniversary benefit concert/dance featuring Nobuko Miyamoto with Theo Gonzalves! Intergenerational groups presented AAU's Standing Up for Justice Awards to Grayce Uyehara, John Elliott Churchville, and 1Love Movement. Emcee Kao Khue wove the program together like poetry.

Nobuko wrote and sang a new song for the first time: ”You are the ones we've been waiting for...” And all joined in singing: ”We are the ones we've been waiting for.”

...with so much gratitude for all who build communities and work for justice.

First day with zero Roots programming crazy to handle - and I miss them all already!!! Thank you Rootsers 1.0 for an unforgettable summer; and the Rootsters 1.0 Staff Team for such an incredible and humbling learning experience. I was so challenged this summer to learn, see, practice differently - all through tears, laughter, and building a community based in love. It's like we're reconnecting as a whole new, more intentional ecosystem! See folks during the school-year! #notatFACTSthisAM #postprogramnostalgia — with Yuan Zou, Michelle Do, Lee Mai, Lan Dinh, Neary Narom and Duong Nghe Ly.

Asian socialists unite


Nancy Dung Nguyen, August 11, 2016;

It's not over yet for us, but one of the best moments this summer was when youth from VietLead, Asian Americans United, and Youth United for Change came together to being the long process of building across, between, and beyond. We completed a crazy 8-mile neighborhood walk to learn about hard-won fights that keep together Chinatown, the remaking of South Philly through Washington Ave, the hyper-gentrification in Point Breeze, and the formation of Cambodia Town. By the end of it, we were tired as F - but proud of what we have seen our people be able to do. Philly, watch out. We are taking it and remaking it towards of vision of justice, equity, resilience, complexity, and love. — with Kat Engleman, Duong Nghe Ly, Lan Dinh, Thanh Nguyen, Anne Tran, Wei Chen, Sarun Savouthchan and Bro Chi Minh.
