Founded in 1992, the Asian Pacific American Labor Alliance (APALA), AFL-CIO is the first and only national organization of Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) union members and allies advancing worker, immigrant, and civil rights.
Backed with strong support of the AFL-CIO, APALA has 23 chapters and pre-chapters in 16 states and a national office in Washington, D.C. In 2011 to ensure broader education, civic engagement, and capacity building for our communities, APALA established the Institute for Asian Pacific American Leadership & Advancement (IAPALA) as a 501(c)3.
To achieve our mission, we build power by:
Organizing members into unions, develop a pipeline of labor leaders, and build political power for our community;
Educating AAPI workers and allies about the labor movement, principles of trade unionism, and collective bargaining, as well as provide a vehicle for AAPI issues and concerns;
Activating our chapters across the country to advance social, racial, and economic justice through state-based campaigns; and
Representing the voice of AAPI workers on coalitions within the labor community and more broadly in the civil rights, AAPI, and racial justice communities
