Our Purpose

The mission of the Asian American Resource Workshop is to work to build intergenerational, intersectional community power in the pan-Asian community of greater Boston. We are a member-led organization that works toward racial, social, and economic justice through arts and culture, political education, leadership development, and neighborhood and issue-based organizing. It strives to build a political home by amplifying our voices, sharing stories, weaving networks, and developing progressive Asian American leaders. AARW's flagship organizing program, the Dorchester Organizing and Training Initiative (DOT-I), is a leadership development, base building, and campaign organizing program for Vietnamese American young adults in the Dorchester neighborhood in Boston.
