The Asian American Feminist Collective, based in Brooklyn, provides spaces for political education and community building through events and resources that connect the intersections of Asian-American identities with issues of social justice. The group held a launch party in Prospect Heights in September.

In a story for BK Reader, Kindra Cooper speaks to AAFC co-founder Rachel Kuo.

“Rather than frame politics as right or wrong, part of our mission is to create spaces and resources that make intersectional feminist politics more accessible to our communities,” says Kuo.

Prior to its official launch, AAFC had already curated a range of events with unique angles, including the  “Asian American Feminism in the Trump Era” series, under the umbrella of the NYC chapter of the National Pacific Asian Women’s Forum (NAPAWF), an organization dedicated to reproductive justice, gender parity and immigrant’s rights.
