About Us

Founded in 1992, the Asian Pacific American Labor Alliance, AFL-CIO, is the first and only Los Angeles-based organization of Asian Pacific American (APA) union members. APALA Los Angeles is also inclusive of non-union workers, many of which are community members.

APALA has a rich history of recruiting and training union members and labor activists to become leaders in the labor movement, mobilizing voters to increase APA participation in the political process and engaging local communities to increase their awareness of the labor movement and issues that affect workers. Furthermore, APALA is committed to forging ties with our international brothers and sisters to continue the fight for worker justice.

Over 600,000 Asian Pacific American workers have joined unions and are seeking better pay, improved benefits, dignity on the job, and a voice in the workplace. APALA-Los Angeles chapter is one of 11 chapters and pre-chapters nationwide. Its national office in Washington D.C.
