The racial makeup of the Kentucky Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression has largely been African American and white. As Louisville’s Latino and immigrant populations grow, there are efforts underway to recruit new members and build new alliances so the work is reflective of the community. In the late 1990’s, American Indian Alliance member Thomas Pearce (oral history interview included in this collection), helped facilitate this special program with Anishinabeg Indian elders from the White Earth Reservation in Minnesota.
