Help the Waterfront Warriors fundraise for CAAAV: Organizing Asian Communities!
CAAAV (Committee Against Anti-Asian Violence) has worked for years to build the power of Asian communities in New York City so that they can impact the policies and institutions that affect their lives.
What are we raising money for?
Recently, CAAAV won their campaign to ensure that Chinatown residents were heard in the development of the East Waterfront in New York City. After years of campaigning, the waterfront will now be developed to provide open park space at Pier 35; $14 million will be used to rehabilitate Pier 42 for community use.
How are we going to celebrate?
On September 8th, we will walk to celebrate this victory and to support CAAAV's work organizing Asian communities in New York City.
