2017 has been a year like no other. It is not just enough for us to survive, we have the right to thrive and to build our lives and communities in the healthiest ways possible. It is with this in mind and in this moment that CPA continues to expand our work, to build broader movements that can tackle the manifestations of xenophobia, hate, and greed. We will work to experiment, expand, build power and build the alternatives that we need, while meeting the immediates needs of our communities. This is our Resistance Pivot.
This year, as CPA turned 45, we celebrated all of the ways our organization has grown. From the Yank Sing victory, to launching a national program that trains young Asian Americans, and to growing our youth programs, we are so proud of all the ways that CPA has grown over the last 5 years. But, what do we want to say about CPA 5 years from now? How are we all stepping up in this moment to not just put out the fires but to build the structures that values our lives?
We do this work out of the deep love for our communities, our families, and because we know that there is a better way. As CPA wraps up 2017, we hope that you will continue to join us in this movement to build the world we deserve.
