Our theme for 2018 is Taking Action in Solidarity.
2017 was a year of attack on our values. Our government, particularly under the current administration, is blatantly evil. They want nothing more than to escalate their assault on transgender people, immigrants, and people of color.
Now more than ever, it is crucial that we continue building community and standing for inclusion. It is crucial that we continue taking action in solidarity with LGBTQ, API, Black, Latino, and Indigenous communities.
GAPIMNY taught me every individual can make a difference. And when we bring together a community of talented, passionate, and fearless QTAPIs*, we can impact the world in meaningful ways.
We can make a difference because of you. In 2017, you enabled us to build a community of 151 active paid members, develop 46 community leaders, and create a marketing reach of 14,242 queer and trans API people.
We have an important year ahead of us, and I couldn’t be more excited to see what we can accomplish, with your help.
Please see the links below for a few ways you can help make a difference in your community.
Together, we will continue creating supportive networks for QTAPIs, developing leaders in our community, and raising visibility on important issues.
Thank you for taking part in our mission to empower Queer & Trans API people to create positive change.
