Support AAPI Montclair

About AAPI Montclair

AAPI Montclair is a 501(c)3 nonprofit representing Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders and families in Montclair, NJ and the greater New Jersey area. We are a brave space to share experiences and help unify our voices to create action and representation for our communities.

Our mission is to create a more inclusive Montclair by uplifting the varied experiences of its AAPI communities, advocating for AAPI rights and representation, and promoting awareness and education around AAPI culture and history. Through our work, we hope to encourage structural change, build solidarity among communities, and fight for equity for all oppressed groups, while celebrating AAPI cultures. We invite co-conspirators to engage with and support our community-wide efforts towards a more inclusive New Jersey.

Your generosity will support initiatives including:

- Large-scale public events that build solidarity, raise the visibility of AAPI issues, and help educate our wider community about AAPI culture and history, such as our Lunar New Year and Diwali celebrations;

- Youth programs that offer our children spaces for exploring the joy, pride, and complexities of being Asian American;

- Advocacy and public safety support, including free self-defense classes, community upstander trainings, and work advancing AAPI civic engagement, representation, and civil rights;

- AAPI Heritage Month programming and support in our public schools and Montclair generally;

And more!
