  Kyla Cheung is fundraising for Committee Against Anti-Asian Violence (CAAAV), an org that's been around for 20 years and the only pan-Asian organization in NYC that develops the leadership of low-income Asian immigrants and refugees towards systematic and institutional change.

They've spent the past several years organizing tenants to advocate for housing rights, and I'm currently volunteering with their committee to push for tenants' interests during the Chinatown rezoning. The campaign to inform residents of the impending changes (and prevent displacement and further luxury development!) is going to get more involved this summer. Let me know if you want to help :)

Anyway, just wanted to drop a note to see if you'd be willing to donate to this important work before the fundraiser ends on May 31st! That's in four days!

The link is here: 

Your donation is tax-deductible, fyi! If you're not in the position to give -- I totally understand! -- it would be great if you forwarded this email and discussed the work CAAAV does with others.

Let me know if you have any questions or concerns about the organization :) And definitely let me know if you want to come to an event or get involved. They need Cantonese speakers!
