APAHE FOREVER: Rooted in Community & Thriving in Partnerships

APAHE has grown as a national organization that honors and seeks to advance all AAPI communities. With this strong foundation, our future work now lies in STRENGTHENING OUR PRESENCE as well as our partnerships and practice with other communities of color and action-oriented allies.APAHE FOREVER is inspired by the movie, Black Panther, which provides a glimpse into the possibilities and potential of a world where an ethnic minority culture is truly honored and celebrated, as well as recognizing the struggles of people beyond our immediate local communities. We want APAHE this year to be our own version of Wakanda.

In the days to come, we will celebrate our successes as well as discuss the disparities within our own communities. We will also engage in conversation on how to develop our capacity to actively partner with other communities to work towards our empowered future.
