ABOUT OUR EVENT

Please join us for APSC's 16th Anniversary Fundraiser & Reception. We have much to celebrate this year: we welcomed many of our family members home from prison and ICE detention, we launched the Chinatown Ambassador's program, spearheaded the #BringPJHome anti-deportation campaign, and began the 5th cycle of the San Quentin ROOTS program. At the same time, we are fighting for liberation for so many of our folks still behind bars.

Founded in 2002, Asian Prisoner Support Committee (APSC) is a grassroots organization dedicated to providing support to Asian and Pacific Islander prisoners and educating the broader community about the growing number of APIs in the US being imprisoned, detained, or deported.
