Supporting API Communities Resource Directory

Overview

AAPIP developed this Supporting API Communities Resource Directory to mobilize the philanthropic sector towards meaningful action in the midst of heightened violence and hate targeting Asian American communities. We encourage allies to engage by learning about and supporting the work of API organizations and coalitions, participating in webinars and online discussions, and the deeper work of connecting the dots between the interpersonal racism experienced by individuals, the systemic racism that impacts Asian American communities (detention, deportation, etc.), and the harm caused by the “model minority” narrative that pits Asian communities against Black communities. It is important for the sector to understand the greater context that these anti-Asian attacks fall under and to support community efforts addressing anti-Asian violence. These are the moments to accelerate philanthropy for an inclusive democracy that calls us all to our fullest human potential.

The purpose of this resource directory is to connect philanthropy with established organizations and coalitions engaged in community efforts addressing anti-Asian violence. This is not an exhaustive list nor an endorsement; there are many efforts that are only being amplified via social media and led by volunteers, and we highly encourage you to plug into these efforts.
