"Role of Asian American and Pacific Islander Movements"

We are LeftRoots members whose identities fall largely under Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander (AAPI) categories. We joined LeftRoots because we are excited to build a Left organization together with other cadre from the ground up and to develop strategy together.
AAPI cadre showed a lot of interest in responding to We Believe That We Can Win (WBTWCW) as soon as it came out. The writers of this document wanted to uplift AAPI communities’ role in revolutionary strategy. In February 2018, a group of LeftRoots cadre and compas (Pam Tau Lee, Michael Liu, May Louie, Lydia Lowe, Don Misumi, and David Monkawa) wrote a paper that was used as a starting point for this one.
