RSVP now for the August call!
August 24, 2021 (9am HST / 12pm PST / 2pm CST / 3pm EST)

These bi-monthly community connect calls are intended to be a space for AANHPI advocates, community members, and allies to connect, dialogue, share successes, problem solve, and network. API-GBV staff will be available to moderate and encourage discussion, but this is a space for YOU, as the experts of this work, to share your experiences and to learn from allies across the country.

August’s Theme: Access for Deaf/Hard of Hearing AAPI Survivors

In the August call, we will discuss access for AAPI survivors who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing. Many survivors who hold these intersectional identities face increased isolation from communities and limited options for meaningful support. API-GBV staff will facilitate conversation around making physical and virtual spaces accessible, inclusivity in outreach, privilege within and outside of the Deaf/Hard of Hearing community, intersections with experiences with racism, and what it means to be a Hearing ally.

Other details:

Meetings will be hosted on Zoom, and you are encouraged to join with video and voice to the extent that you are comfortable. These calls will not be recorded, but we may share takeaways, without identifying information, with our staff or community. ASL interpretation will be provided. Please get in contact with us, or indicate in your RSVP, if you require additional interpretation or accessibility features.
