MISSION STATEMENT


In the 1960s, the founders of the Asian American movement conceived the “Asian American” identity to reject derogatory labels like Oriental and Mongoloid, assert belonging in America, and unite people of Asian descent who share experiences of racism, imperialism, and other forms of oppression. By working across ethnic, racial, and national boundaries, the movement sought to fight against the underlying forces creating these experiences. Today, we - as Asian Americans - remain committed to resisting the structural and systemic forces that lead to violence, discrimination, and exclusion.

Over the past few years, other communities across the nation have led movements for justice. From Black Lives Matter to the struggle of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe to stop the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline, these movements highlight persisting racial inequities that continue to harm communities of color. While many Asian Americans have carried on the tradition of solidarity by actively supporting other communities in their struggles, others have remained silent about these events. In a time when Asian Americans are pitted against Blacks and others with stereotypes like the model minority, it is critical we remember that the Asian American movement was inspired by the Black Power movement and was founded with the mission of ending oppression for all. It is critical we continue to mutually support and work alongside other oppressed communities. It is critical we recognize that the reality we live in today is the legacy of various forms of oppression that affect all of us.

This year’s conference focuses on restoring the roots of the Asian American identity and advancing a vision of justice that emphasizes our intricate ties to other communities of color. Through this theme, we seek to engage in the exploration of intersectionality, coalition, and collectivity as we strive to become united with other movements. We hope to provide a space for conference participants to grow, heal, and take action. By the end of Listen to the Silence 2017, we hope that participants will feel empowered to contribute to the on-going movements and work towards a just and equitable world for all.

In solidarity,
LISTEN TO THE SILENCE, 2017
