Hi Friends and Family!
For the last five years, I have been part of API Equality - Northern California, an organization for and by LGBTQ Asian and Pacific Islanders. During this time, I have had the opportunity to watch the organization blossom with new leaders who are inspiring communities, building power, and increasing visibility. I have witnessed young folks and community elders collaborate and bring enriching projects forward. I have been blessed enough to learn and grow from over five classes of phenomenal interns, and I have seen the power of donors: people who took a stand and decided that our organization, even without foundational grant support, had to keep its doors open. I'm grateful for all these beautiful experiences and lessons.
Now, I'm running a 5k and asking you to join the powerful team of API Equality - Northern California donors. For those of you who have given in the past and those of you who are giving for the first time today, YOU make our organization RUN. Your thoughtful donation inspires us to keep hitting the pavement.
Whether or not you give today, I want to thank you for all the ways you have supported me.
