AAPI Women Strong: Organizing Beyond a Hashtag

On April 21, 2021, Public Wise hosted AAPI Women Strong: Organizing Beyond A Hashtag to benefit the National Asian Pacific American Women’s Forum. 

1,684 watched the event live, $313,876 was raised and 38 sponsors supported the event.

The National Asian Pacific Women’s Forum is a partner Public Wise granted to during the 2020 election cycle and they were instrumental in turning out the AAPI vote during the Georgia runoff elections.  

On March 16, 2021 a heinous hate crime against Asian women happened in Atlanta. Within six weeks of the attack Public Wise in partnership with Onward Together and Michelle Kwan produced a virtual fundraiser to raise rapid response funds for NAPAWF as part of continued Funds+ support.
