Who We Support - #CookiesForACause

This month, we are proud to support APALA National.

“Founded in 1992, the Asian Pacific American Labor Alliance (APALA), AFL-CIO, is the first and only national organization of Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) workers...

Coping Cookies is proud to support this organization's initiative: 

  • Hosting political engagement programs to encourage votes that advance immigrant rights
  • Creating an environment that fosters civic engagement amongst AAPI leaders who are committed to facilitating change in their communities
  • Committing itself to displaying solidarity across all immigrants and “communities of color under oppression.” 
  • Helping to facilitate full AAPI involvement in labor organizing. This helps ensure equal pay, benefits, and workforce protections.
Since its founding, APALA has played a unique role in addressing the workplace issues of the 660,000 AAPI union members and in serving as the bridge between the broader labor movement and the AAPI community.
APALA National also posts excellent material to learn from and to stay up to date with what they're doing!  - @apalanational

 

A portion of this month's proceeds will go directly to them and their work.
