Stephanie Hsu shares a video from the Jeremy Lin foundation that highlights the impact organizations can have on catalyzing change.
Check out the video! We are inspired by the impact of each organization catalyzing change for the AAPI community and working with other marginalized communities. Thank you for being on this journey in building a future where we are STRONGER TOGETHER. To learn more about the 9 organizations, visit: https://www.jeremylinfoundation.org/strongertogether
The Stronger Together Collaborative (@jlinfoundation x @taaforg) supports 9 community-rooted underserved AAPI youth organizations that are bridge building and coalition building with other communities of color in solidarity. These organizations give us a glimpse of what underserved AAPI youth in New York City struggle with daily, and the future that they are fighting for. The organizations requested a safe space TOGETHER to speak, listen, learn, and connect. Last month, along with facilitators @buildingmovementproject, we gathered together for a Building Solidarity Together workshop.
