“Building community strengthens our capacity to fight for justice. When we create a street festival, teach folk arts, grow a community garden, or build a school – we create connections among people, honor the knowledge of the elders in our communities, activate people, and value our own cultures. This work is fundamental to social justice work.”
— Ellen Somekawa

No stadium, no casino and no arena!

Wei Chen, Asian Americans United’s Civic Engagement Director said, “We ask our city government to stand with us on this matter. This is not the first time that big developers proposed to build something without our input: the baseball stadium, the casino, to name a few. We have defeated each one of them. We are ready to fight to protect our community.”
