In the struggle for the Third World College and Third World Studies, the coalition and its member organizations, such as Asian American Political Alliance (AAPA) began to be synonymous with the respective programs they sought to establish, rather than the anti-imperialist and anti-capitalist political organizations they were. The letter to be part of the Central Committee in AAPA reveals the desire to recenter and ground this intention, especially in a moment of political turbulence throughout the Bay Area spearheaded by Third World people.
The letter reveals the structure and radical imaginary of a democratic organization. The intentionality in not only building with one another politically but socially indicates the spirit of movement and solidarity building: relationships. In addition, the inclusion of the questionnaire and its contents (i.e. questions around other social movements, such as Black Liberation and the White Radical movement) is illustrative of the horizontal nature of the organization but also the way it interacts with the intersectional issues of the time.
