Collective Total Raised on Give OUT Day 2019: $1,132,970

 

I'm making a difference by supporting

API Equality-LA


Raised: $0Remaining: $500


Proud moment when API Equality-LA and the community came together in my hometown SGV to counter the hateful anti-LGBTQ protest.


I joined API Equality-LA after the passage of Prop 8, which banned same-sex marriages in CA.  They created a space for me to feel safe, proud and empowered to channel my energy in making a positive change in the Asian and Pacific Islander (API) and LGBTQ community. 

 
Today is national GIVE OUT Day, so I'm asking my friends and family to pitch in at least $11 in honor of our 11th Anniversary.   I want to fundraise so that others can have the same opportunities I did.   There's so much good we can all bring to this world.  I hope you will join me today to GIVE OUT :)
