A horrific and heartbreaking surge in violence against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) is happening across the US. Too often, these attacks are ignored and underreported. Together, it is our responsibility to condemn these violent acts and create lasting social change. We must amplify AAPI voices and find ways to uplift, empower, and protect the AAPI community. The GoFundMe.org Support the AAPI Community Fund aims to do just that, addressing the urgent issues that face the AAPI community as well as broader, systemic problems. With the donations received through the Fund, GoFundMe.org will issue grants to trusted AAPI organizations working to rectify the racial inequalities in our society. Who benefits from your GoFundMe.org donation? Donations will support organizations that empower and uplift the AAPI community, with initiatives such as increased community safety and support for those affected by violence.A cross-sectional advisory group of AAPI advocacy and activist leaders including APIAVote's Christine Chen, Define America's Jose Antonio Vargas, formerly BLD PWR's Lacy Lew Nguyen Wright, and Brad Jenkins of RUN AAPI; cultural leaders Phillip Lim, Gold House, and CAPE; the GoFundMe.org board, and the GoFundMe Trust and Safety teams are reviewing organizations to determine which ones will receive grants from the AAPI Community Fund. At this stage, the focus is on grassroots organizations, including, but not limited to organizations listed here.
