For over 20 years, AALEAD has empowered low-income and underserved Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) youth to become confident leaders. Despite mainstream perceptions, AAPIs experience divergent socioeconomic outcomes connected to their countries of origin and migration histories.
The global pandemic has exacerbated inequitable outcomes in communities of color, including our diverse AAPI community. AALEAD has risen to the challenge, shifting quickly to a virtual format to deliver program continuity and support for our youth.
Amidst the rise in anti-Asian racism and xenophobia, and heightened stress and uncertainty, we found powerful voices, exceptional leadership, and hope in our youth, their families, and our staff. Through the Element of Hope Fundraiser we will share our story from the perspective of youth, supporters, and staff, and introduce you to our new Executive Director, Akil Vohra.
Be an element of hope and join us on September 30th!
