I'm making a difference by supporting

API Equality-LA

Raised: $0Remaining: $500

As a former staffer of 6-7 years and Steering Committee member, API Equality-LA has been instrumental to my emotional, intellectual, and professional growth. It's provided me an avenue to do necessary and urgent work in the community, while allowing me to simultaneously build a second family and home.  

Thank you for considering to donate an organization that has been the center of my life for most of my adult life as well as supporting work that continues bolster queer youth API from across the state!  


API Equality-LA is a grassroots nonprofit organization that serves the Greater Los Angeles community. We work within the Asian and Pacific Islander and LGBTQ+ communities in order to promote racial and social justice. Much of our work is driven by dedicated members and volunteers; thus, we are truly a community-driven and run organization!

Our Give OUT Day goal is $7500 in order to fund and sustain our internship and leadership programs for the upcoming year. Our programs gives youth from different backgrounds and identities hands-on training with community organizing and activism.

Featured projects from interns and volunteers this summer:

  • Helped lead 1st Trans Allyship Teach-In with community members

  • Led 626 Night Market Outreach where we spoke to over 500 members of the community and received 197 signed pledge forms over one weekend!

  • Attended Queer Justice Youth Convening to discuss the climate for queer and trans youth in the Los Angeles area

  • Held trans-focused educational workshops with community partners, such as Chinatown Community for Equitable Development (CCED), to open up discussions about gender and sexuality within our API communities


Now, this is where YOU come in!

All of the work we do here at API Equality-LA would not be possible without our dedicated volunteers, interns, and staff, as well as donors, big and small. In order to ensure that we can continue our fight for justice, we need your assistance to sustain our work. Donate to help us lead change in our 11th year and beyond!
