Just Another Asian Am Worker

May Day, Central Ohio

Written on May 1, 2017. Still applies.

In Central Ohio, Asian origin workers are not thought about often when we talk about workers, or immigrants, or people of color.

But here I am and here we are.

Today I am asserting my presence:

— as an immigrant, born in Ahmedabad

— as a member of an immigrant community, whose mother tongue is Gujarati
