In the face of such a panoply of identities, forming a pan-Asian/Pacific/American identity has historically proven to be difficult and complicated. AAARI's conference will explore these challenges and complexities while also identifying and assessing historical instances of successful panethnic coalition building. Ultimately, this conference will provide an intersectional framework and understanding around how APA activists can center frontline leadership and the struggles of the community with which they are standing in solidarity.
