A lacuna is an unfilled space, a gap. More specifically:
- Lacuna (manuscripts), a missing section of text
- Lacuna (music), an extended silence in a piece of music
- Lacuna (linguistics), a lexical gap in a language
- Lacuna (law), the lack of a law or legal source addressing a situation
The great achievements in civil rights and economic and social equality were the result of long and hard-fought battles for a more just society. Yet gaps and missed opportunities persist and our struggles remain unnoticed, unseen, and unheard.
They formed a giving circle called Lacuna to help fill the gaps that the Asian American and Pacific Islander communities continue to face. Supported by AAPIP with a matching grant, Lacuna strives not only to provide resources to non-profit organizations already serving our communities but also a mechanism for emerging young, queer AAPI professionals to participate in a proactive model of leadership and community engagement.
Through Lacuna, they hope to inspire and empower emerging young, queer AAPIs through greater visibility and meaningful engagement within our communities.
