BLM Translated

As a pan-Asian organization, NAPAWF*NYC understands the complications in communicating with our family and friends who have different language abilities, represent different generational identities, and have varying understandings of racial analysis.

This is a crowdsourced repository of materials in Asian & Pacific Islander diasporic languages we can all use to navigate difficult discussions about Black Lives Matter, anti-blackness, American history, and police/state-sanctioned violence with our families and communities.

We need your help in finding more resources like toolkits, articles, videos, poems, comics, graphics, etc. in as many languages as possible to further educate our people. We need materials in Pacific Islander languages, in particular! Have something to contribute to the list? Submit materials here! 

For easy navigation of this document, go to the left-hand sidebar and click on the document icon/press “Show Document Outline”.

BEFORE YOU DIVE IN:

Here are Essential Anti-Racism Resources for Asian People in America. If we are not clear on how racism directly impacts us as A(A)PIs, how we are hurt by it, we cannot talk about solidarity.

For educators and organizers, here is the Asian American Racial Justice Toolkit.

We recognize it’s often not about the script, but about how you talk to your parents, families, and communities. Here are tips and reminders for how to have these conversations:
