I’m raising money to support API Equality-LA which has been such an important resource as I learn to call Los Angeles my home. As folks may know, I left the Pacific Northwest in September 2017 to live closer to my mom who has early onset Alzheimer’s. While I love being closer to my mom, the transition to Los Angeles was rough, to say the least, not including the challenges that come with being a caretaker.
Since moving here though, I have found awesome community through API Equality which has made that tough transition so much smoother. I really feel like I’ve found a community of people who hold similar progressive values (and who also love eating delicious Asian food)! I am so grateful for this organization that seeks to empower APIs to organize for LGBTQ, racial and social justice. Your donation would go toward supporting API Equality's programming, including a youth leadership program, transgender justice 101 workshops, and our immigration justice campaign.
In December 2018, I joined the Steering Committee of API Equality to help steward the organization in setting strategic goals and building grassroots power in API LGBTQ communities. (Pictured above are some great pals I’ve met along the way like Steering Committee members Andrew and Marcus, who are also my coworkers at my day job!)
Please help by donating to support this awesome grassroots community organization!
Wendy approves! :)
