I’m not AAPI, but I’m a member of APALA

I’m not AAPI, but I’m a member of APALA because I believe community engagement is the best way to strengthen and grow the labor movement.

Voter registration drives in Virginia, Trick or Vote, and APALA’ s presence at the Asian Festival reach out to Asian American and Pacific Islander communities without a strong union presence.lake ontario

Programs like the Worker’s Rights Hearing and the Justice 4 Grand Isle Ship Yard Filipino Workers Campaign: Community Forum educate the rest of the labor community and show that all workers are connected, regardless of race or nationality.

The labor movement needs more organizations like APALA!
