The Asian American Liberation Network’s mission is to build power in the Asian American
community to advance social justice and collective liberation.


  • Liberation is defined as the respected, represented, celebrated, nourished, and
    resourced existence of all our Asian American communities.
  • We know the Asian American community is vast and nuanced. We are intersectional
    with other identities.
  • Because we are not a monolith, we know responses to our needs cannot be
  • We lead with equity– meaning we practice inclusivity and recognize impact, while
    also prioritizing those closest to the pain.
  • We know community organizations, trusted leaders, and members who share
    identity, lived experiences, and who serve in their unique communities, are the best
    to inform and develop solutions to their justice and liberation.
  • We strive to build coalition with organizations, leaders and community members, and
    amplify these identities and experiences.
  • We believe in abundance– meaning we do not accept the notion that there aren’t
    enough resources for all to be liberated.
  • We challenge the systems and interventions that have been and continue to be
    harmful to our communities. We know there is a way to reimagine systems and
    solutions that align with these values and work for not just us, but everyone.
