There is Nothing More Difficult

Barbara Phillips

There is nothing more difficult to carry out, nor more doubtful of success, nor more dangerous to handle than to initiate a new order of things.


Not Just Another Tool in the Toolbox

Tawal Panyacosit, Executive Director of API Equality Northern California

When Alice Y. Hom, Director of the Queer Justice Fund, first mentioned that she was working on a report on funding disparities for LGBTQ AAPI communities, I was excited. I remember telling her it would become one of my bibles, my go-to resources on the LGBTQ AAPI community.


Part 4: Civic Engagement Fund (CEF) Critical Collaboration Series

Simran Kaur, The Sikh Coalition

Consensus building is an incredibly powerful process in decision-making. When groups want strong support for a project, by all members, consensus building is not only beneficial but it is also impactful. Consensus building has a rich history and has been used by various communities, groups and political movements over time.


I Know How It Feels to Be Judged For Being Different

Steve Li, 2012 DREAM Summer Intern

Attending the 2012 NQAPIA conference was truly a privilege, being able to share a space with many individuals who identified themselves as LGBTQ API. Never have I seen so many come together from different generations to work for social change in the LQBTQ API community.


Part 3: Civic Engagement Fund (CEF) Critical Collaboration Series

S. Nadia Hussain

Oftentimes, in activism, it can seem as if we are in isolated bubbles, fighting uphill battles that never end. In this cohort, I think we have seen that we are all a valuable piece of a larger puzzle, pieces that can come together for broader changes. ASATA as an organization feels empowered to know that we are part of a greater movement.
