United Aunties is based at BCA Sun Wah in Vancouver’s Chinatown on the unceded, ancestral, and occupied homelands belonging to the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) and səl̓ílwətaʔɬ /Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. We stand in solidarity with Indigenous people fighting for their land and sovereignty.
Our roots are among the East Asian diaspora and we are inspired by the diverse cultures that prevail in and around Vancouver’s Chinatown. Recognizing the structural racism that exists against Black, Indigenous, and racialized people, and the lateral violence that dwells in our ancestral communities, we are committed to dismantling all forms of oppression and domination. This includes violence against sex workers, drug users, and unhoused people living in the Downtown Eastside. We support calls to defund the police and dismantle the carceral state, and to build communities upholding the principles of transformative justice.
United Aunties will take action in solidarity with liberation movements, including the use of our platform to amplify calls to action. We refuse to be silent and complicit.
