Peoples Collective for Justice & Liberation is a pro-justice movement of Asians and Asian Americans building transformative solidarity with Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) and organizing with an intersectional, multi-generational and cross-sector framework.

Co-Founders, Gregory Cendana and DJ Kuttin Kandi, came together to organize the Peoples Collective for Justice & Liberation first town hall on anti-Asian Racism titled, “Race, Struggle & Solidarity In the Time of A Global Pandemic” on Saturday, March 28, 2020 which had over 7,000 registrants on Zoom, over 34,000 viewers across all social media channels and had the hashtag #AntiAsianRacism trending in the US. Through a debrief with townhall panelists and an event survey filled out by attendees of the town hall; the People’s Collective received crucial feedback that would further push the dialogue as well as expand the intersectionality of our movement work. The survey assessment included attendees asking for additional town halls, dialogues and workshops that would provide tools, resources and further knowledge on various topics such as coalition-building, restorative justice, economic justice, disability justice, mental health, education, anti-Black racism, gender violence, gender and LGBTQ justice, and so much more.

Since then, the Peoples Collective for Justice & Liberation has grown extensively with a phenomenal Organizing Committee and an esteemed Advisory Council. In addition, PC4JL has expanded its endeavors by establishing the University for Justice and Liberation in partnership with the Bulosan Center, housed in the Department of Asian American Studies at the University of California Davis.[1]
