Thank you to our 2019 Nonprofits and Donors

April 26, 2020

Please join us in congratulating our 3 awardees from the 2019-20 grant cycle and learn more about their critical work.

  • Act to Change – Works to address bullying, including in the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community. Unfortunately, many AAPI youth who are bullied face unique cultural, religious, and language barriers that can keep them from getting help. This nonprofit empowers each of us with the knowledge and tools to help stop and prevent bullying in our communities. Act to Change is partnering with local DMV groups to host a “Be Kind” youth conference. Join the #ActToChange movement.
  • Story Tapestries – Leads arts education and social justice programming through Amplify Us: An Intergenerational Dialogue on Race and Identity. Story Tapestries partners with poet and producer, Regie Cabico, to offer workshops and performances to AAPI communities, including an upcoming Asian American Spoken Word Series. Free workshops are offered in accessible public spaces in communities including those with a high AAPI population facing high rates of bias incidents as well as in spaces that have existing programs addressing social justice issues. The
    collaboration between Story Tapestries and Regie Cabico has led to community members who feel empowered to tell their story, advocate for their needs and demonstrate the value of their culture.
  • Vietnamese American Services – Serves Vietnamese Americans and immigrants with low socioeconomic status, limited English proficiency, by promoting access to healthcare, providing direct support to vulnerable populations, providing English classes and job referral services, and hosting community events.
