BENEFITING: Asian Americans Advancing Justice-Los Angeles
UPLIFT (formerly known as ASPIRE-LA) is an undocumented Asian and Pacific Islander (API) youth led organization based in Los Angeles. Our mission is to support and build the undocumented API community. We are creating this fundraiser to raise $2000 to give out several grants to individuals who identify as both undocumented and Asian or Pacific Islander. As undocumented APIs ourselves, we recognize the impact of financial challenges on one’s everyday life. We also recognize that there is a lack of scholarship opportunities and similar resources directed towards undocumented APIs. To address these issues, UPLIFT is creating the Uplifting UndocuAPIs Grant to provide recipients with financial assistance to meet their everyday needs or fulfill their educational or career goals.
Community is the driving force of UPLIFT. We believe that supporting each other holds the power to uplift those in need to rise up and push through their struggles to fulfill their potential and achieve their goals. We are asking our fellow community members to help us make this grant a reality. We truly appreciate all the support that our community continuously gives us. By donating, you are directly providing much needed help to the undocumented API community. This support has made a difference in each of our lives, and we hope you can continue joining us in uplifting our fellow undocumented APIs.. Will you uplift with us?
