THE STORY:

Kasi Chakravartula wrote -

The Asian Prisoner Support Committee (APSC) is raising funds at the Oakland Running Festival on April 2nd. Please consider making a donation in honor of one of our runners! Your donation will be matched by a generous contribution from the East Bay Community Foundation (up to 20,000)!

Funds raised will be used towards our prison and reentry programs including:

  • Community-based reentry programs led by formerly incarcerated Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI).
  • Conducting organizing and advocacy to address increasing issues of "crimmigration"--the intersection of mass incarceration and deportation policies.
  • Expanding/replicating the San Quentin ROOTS program. Inspired from Ethnic Studies/Asian American Studies curriculum, the ROOTS program includes presentations and discussions on the following topics: AAPI immigration history, intergenerational trauma, social justice movements, racial formation and criminalization, health disparities, mental health, cultural healing practices, masculinity and gender, healthy/unhealthy relationships, LGBTQ experiences, deportation policies and reentry planning.

Thank you for enabling APSC to support our currently and formerly incarcerated community members!

Our fiscal sponsor and AACRE partner, Chinese for Affirmative Action (CAA), receives and processes the donations for APSC.
