The Asian American Resource Workshop works for the empowerment of the Asian Pacific American community to achieve its full participation in U.S. society.  We are a member-based organization that uses arts, education, and activism to build the skills and political analysis of our pan-Asian membership. Our resources and activities are used to respond to current Asian Pacific American issues and to promote Asian Pacific American identity.

As an organization committed to pan-Asian organizing, we will respond and mobilize in the fight against Southeast Asian deportations. In Fall 2017, we felt called to organize, locally and nationally, because of the rise of deportations happening in the community. We are committed to supporting and uplifting the leadership of our Southeast Asian community members, which means we will show up and organize to defend and protect our families and communities.
