Diane Fujino is a professor of Asian American Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara. She’s interested in how ordinary people imagine visions for a liberatory world and work collectively to create that change. She helped to found Cooperation Santa Barbara to work towards building an alternative, democratic, and participatory solidarity economy, in response to the inequities exposed by the coronavirus pandemic and the Black Lives Matter protests. She’s been active with Ethnic Studies Now! Santa Barbara to implement an ethnic studies requirement in the high schools, the UCSB MultiCultural, and La Casa de la Raza. She teaches, studies, and writes about Asian American activism, Black Power, and Afro-Asian solidarities.
