March for Justice on Staten Island

Community organizers, activists, and elected officials gathered on Staten Island in a march to demand justice for the NYPD killing of Eric Garner. Although organized by Al Sharpton’s National Action Network, the march and rally was attended by many different organizations and individuals, including the organizations that are part of the coalition, Communities United for Police Reform ( CPR). Many spoke in front of the thousands that came out to support the Garner family, and they not only called for the continuation of demonstrations until justice is served to the police officers responsible for Eric Garner’s death but also reminded us that the issue of police brutality has been an on-going issue still affecting the lives of so many people of color.

“Delano Manongs”: Documentary about Filipino Farm Workers Struggle

Emmy Award winning director Marissa Aroy recently released her latest documentary film, “ Delano Manongs,” which chronicles Filipino farm workers in 1960s United States. The film focuses on the story of farm labor organizer Larry Itliong and a group of Filino farm workers who instigated The Delano Grape Strike of 1965, which brought about the creation of the United Farm Workers Union (UFW). Aroy provides audiences with stories often untold about the Filipino workers and labor organizers’ role in helping to build what has been widely considered a Chicano farm workers’ movement led by Cesar Chavez.

On July 17th, APF’s Alison Roh Park covered the New York City Premiere event of the “Delano Manongs” sponsored by CAAAV Organizing Asian Communities and BAYAN-USA.
