AYPAL Youth Mobilize for Worker Rights from Oakland to Baltimore to Cambodia!

This past Friday, May 1, 2015 a contingent of over 40 AYPAL youth headed to the city across the bay to bring fierce leadership, dynamic energy, and swag alongside those who are fighting for jobs with dignity, safe working conditions, and livable wages for (immigrant/refugee) communities (of color).

Bringing the noise with our very own drum line, our youth made sure to let San Francisco know that AYPAL will also organize in solidarity with workers, black resistance, queer family, immigrant/refugee communities, and all people impacted by power and oppression.

Our contingent brought a taste of Oakland to the Mission neighborhood, where we connected the on-going gentrification impacting both of our cities as manifestations of state violence impacted communities of color that we must resist against in order to keep our communities together!

Aligning ourselves with ongoing struggles for a world where women are free to exercise their agency to live without violence, we aligned ourselves with the #StandWithNanHui Campaign in order to demand that domestic violence survivors, and their children, are not deported or torn apart by the law.

We make movement building and social justice look good!
