More important than ever, we need to build the POWER and VISIBILITY of Asian Pacific Islander (API) LGBTQ people. Our communities are being assailed by homophobic, transphobic, Islamophobic, sexist, and racist rhetoric, policies, and laws from the current administration, its appointees, and its supporters.
As a community, we must UNITE, RESIST, AND PREVAIL. To do this, API Equality-LA needs YOUR support:
OUTREACH WITH US DURING 626 NIGHT MARKET:
The 626 Night Market is an API food festival that happens in Santa Anita Park. It is a good opportunity for us to do outreach and enjoy the awesome food. We want to make sure ALL API LGBTQ people are fighting for justice and equity for all of our communities. To do this, we need your help with talking to the festival attendees about API LGBTQ issues and recruiting them to be leaders for our community! All volunteers will receive an in-depth training and free T-shirt.
