Welcome to APIEquality.org
We are a statewide collaboration of API Equality – LA and API Equality – Northern California, two of the leading organizations advocating and organizing for fairness and equality in the Asian and Pacific Islander (API) and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) communities.
Through a multitude of strategies including public education, media advocacy, research, organizing, and advocacy, we have been and continue to be at the forefront of efforts to secure Equal Marriage Rights for same-sex couples. Over the years, we have expanded these efforts to encompass a growing host of other progressive issues, including Anti-Discrimination, Comprehensive Immigration Reform, Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, and Safe Schools efforts.
As grassroots organizations, API Equality – LA and API Equality – Northern California are committed to the following in our pursuit of equality and justice:
- Building strong regional bases of supporters and volunteers
- Expanding the reach and diversity of our statewide network of API
- Working with regional, state, and national partners to develop skills, increase capacity, and share best practices and learnings.
This portal is just the beginning of our statewide coordination efforts with new updates and resources forthcoming.
