Widening the Lens on Boys and Men of Color

Current philanthropic initiatives on boys and men of color use research that often fails to disaggregate the “Asian” category, and disadvantaged AAPI and AMEMSA boys and men are often excluded from these funding initiatives.  In response to AAPI and AMEMSA organizations’ concerns about the lack of attention to boys and men in their communities, AAPIP undertook a community-based research effort as an initial step towards building knowledge within philanthropy about AAPI and AMEMSA boys and men of color.
