Announcing the Yuri Kochiyama Fellowship

Advancing Justice-Asian Law Caucus is excited to announce a new fellowship for formerly incarcerated Asian Pacific Islanders.

Too often, the movements against prisons and deportation are out of sync and ignore the intersectional experiences of people in both systems. Advocates often make decisions without inviting formerly incarcerated people into the conversation and without consulting people who are locked up.
