*This is an exerpt from the Asian American Racial Justice Toolkit. The toolkit represents the work and thinking of 15 grassroots organizations with Asian American bases living in the most precarious margins of power and their experiences with criminalization, deportation, homophobia, xenophobia and Islamo-racism, war, gender violence, poverty, and worker exploitation.  By highlighting the role of people’s resistance both past and present, the toolkit seeks to build hope and a commitment to political struggle.
