Another successful Summer Activist Training was held at the end of June with 27 young people who were eager to learn more about organizing and community work. Some of the youth came from as far away as Philadelphia, Penn. and were involved with an organization called Asian Americans United in the Chinatown area. More people applied for the training this year and we expect an equal number next year as activism among young people increases. The SAT was sponsored by five organizations: NCRR, Korean Immigrant Workers Advocates (KIWA), Garment Workers Center (GWC), Pilipino Workers Center (PWC), Thai Community Development Center (Thai CDC). These groups along with volunteers from past SATs provided the coordination, trainers, food and housing for the four-day training. Many of the past SAT participants continue to be involved with community, campus or civil rights issues. This year, NCRR sponsored Tomo Matsuoka (no relation to Jim) who is currently working at the Little Tokyo Service Center CDC with the Residents Council. The training is sustained solely on donations since it is free to the participants. Any donations for SAT can be sent to NCRR.
