This month, we celebrate and recognize the contributions and influences of the Asian and Pacific Islander American community to America’s history and culture. For more information about the importance of and history about this month, click here.
In the past several months, the AAPI community has faced a stark increase in racially targeted violence and attacks. We want to take this opportunity to once again stand in solidarity and to commemorate the many accomplishments of the AAPI community that continue to impact communities across the world. In this month of celebration of Asian and Pacific Islander American culture and diversity, we are sharing resources that address the ongoing fight for racial and social justice. We’ve compiled a list of events and resources below:
- Learn about some AAPI climate/environmental leaders who are leaders in this movement
- Participate in an upcoming virtual AAPI program
- Read about the long history of anti-Asian racism in the US and support the stories of Asian American authors
- Support AAPI small businesses
We hope you will join us in learning more about the AAPI community and stand up to these senseless acts of violence in our communities.
In Service and Solidarity,
The GCF Team
