The Asian Solidarity Collective (ASC) is a grassroots organization in San Diego whose mission is to activate Asian American social justice consciousness, condemn anti-Blackness, and build Asian solidarity with Black folks, queer and trans people of color, and other oppressed communities. Our work includes political education, community building, events, and collective action
We want Asian Americans to be liberated from anti-Black racism, model minority myths, internalized colonialism, and white supremacy.
We want to build Asian-Black solidarity and solidarity with other QT/POC communities in San Diego.
We envision Asian American histories, experiences, and peoples as relational to, not in competition with, other oppressed communities. We understand Asian American lives through a transnational, anti-imperialist framework.
We want collective liberation for all communities. When Black folks are free, we are all free.
