Celebrating AAPI Heritage Month
May is AAPI Heritage Month! What better way to celebrate this month than to share our stories on the theme of Otherness & Belonging.
This event is open to self-identifying AAPI female individuals who would like to connect to fellow AAPI women in real and vulnerable ways through our Yellow Collective Community.
How to Participate
This event will be a safe and supportive space for us to share our honest and real stories. If you’d like to share a story, please think of a 5-minute or under story to share on our theme of Otherness & Belonging. Your stories aren’t meant to be perfect or a performance. They are meant to be raw and true and you will be celebrated for having the courage to use your voice and believe that your voice matters enough to share.
Would you like to just come listen? That’s okay too. We need an audience to help support our storytellers!
Supporting the AAPI Community
All proceeds from this event will be donated to AAPI Women Lead and their #imready movement which aims to strengthen the progressive political and social platforms of Asian and Pacific Islander communities in the US through the leadership of self-identified AAPI women and girls. Our goal is to challenge and help end the intersections of violence against and within our communities. We do this work in solidarity with other communities of color.
