Sustain young API LGBTQ leaders!
API Equality-LA is a grassroots nonprofit organization that serves the Greater Los Angeles community. We work within the Asian and Pacific Islander and LGBTQ+ communities in order to promote racial and social justice. Much of our work is driven by dedicated members and volunteers; thus, we are truly a community-driven and run organization!
Under the current cutbacks to LGBTQ rights under the presidential administration, it is now more important than ever we support our queer and trans and gender non-conforming family. Will you join API Equality-LA in raising $12,000 in our 12th year? All funds will sustain our internship and leadership programs for the upcoming year. Our programs gives youth from different backgrounds and identities hands-on training with community organizing and activism.
