ECAASU 2011 Vision
B.R.E.A.K. (Bridge, Revitalize, Equality, Action, Knowledge)
Bridging the past and present by Revitalizing the APIA political movement to demonstrate
Equality for all; Actions across color-lines, and sharing Knowledge to promote a collective
community.

Date: February 18-19, 2011
Location: University of Massachusetts Amherst

At this year's ECAASU, we are trying to rebuildd the Asian Pacific American Movement by
creating a collective community. What does it mean to have a collective community? A
collective community stems from a desire to create one whole community that promotes the
well being of not just one group, but the well being of everyone. In order to have a collective
community, it is important to bridge the gap and create a connection between the older and
younger generation of activists, scholars, and artists. Through dialogue surrounding social
justices issues, the younger generation will be encouraged to discover struggles for solidarity
from the past-Asian Pacific Islander Americans and the Third World Liberation Front
Movement, Japanese Internment, Vincent Chin, LA Riots of 1992, Richard Aoki's legacy--to
discover what it takes to fight for a community despite concrete color lines. This calls for
attendees to rethink usable pasts and will force them to make a connection about what it
means to be an American, in particular an Asian Pacific American. What was done in the past?
What was our history? What does community mean? Does it mean your own community or
the entire Asian Pacific American Community? What about other oppressed, underrepresented
minority communities?

In ECAASU 2011 @ UMass Amherst, we will create a safe space, where attendees can talk about
their identity and how it relates to the community. Attendees will be encouraged to be honest
and speak with their hearts, especially if they are talking about struggles within the APIA or
allied communities--we want to understand why, analyze the problems in a local/national scale,
and then come up with solutions/next steps to fight for equal representation. In order to build
a strong, collective community, we must not be afraid to speak our minds. That will be one of
many ways to encourage young activists and build communities in their hometown across
color-lines through empowerment for a stronger sense of identity, and an urgency to improve
their communities after attending ECAASU 2011 at UMass Amherst.








WHAT IS ECAASU?

ADVANCE the social equality of minorities by eliminating prejudice and discrimination,
defending human and civil rights, and combating racism and hate crimes through activities

Ultimately, ECAASU strives to inspire, educate, and empower those interested in Asian
