MOVE: Asian American Community Organizing Fellowship was founded in 2017 in order to create opportunities for community-centered work calling back to the Third World Liberation Front’s objective to provide relevant education to transform our communities. Due to the lack of opportunities for critical connections between Asian American students and community organizations, MOVE was founded by undergraduates to allow for students to engage critically in our communities.
MOVE partners Asian American-serving community-based organizations (CBOs) across the Bay Area have hosted fellows to work on socio-political issues including youth development, labor rights, mental health, incarceration and deportation, and environmental justice. To scaffold their experiences at CBOs, MOVE also develops fellow’s community organizing skills to prepare them to tackle the underlying frameworks and systemic equities that guide Asian American community organizing.
