See Us Unite for Change
See Us Unite is a cultural campaign designed to accelerate impact and expand support for the AAPI community through solidarity and education. Our ambition is to amplify voices as we unite to change people’s perception about what it means to be an American. We will do this by bringing allies and partners together to use our resources and networks to support the on-the-ground work of community organizers raising awareness, building understanding and broadening educational efforts about the Asian American experience. See Us Unite was created by a coalition of nonprofits led by The Asian American Foundation (TAAF), in collaboration with the Ford Foundation, MacArthur Foundation, The Henry Luce Foundation and the Wallace H. Coulter Foundation in service of solidarity with the AAPI Community. In partnership with the Asian Pacific Fund, See Us Unite will direct support to Asian Americans Advancing Justice (AAAJ), Stop AAPI Hate, National Asian Pacific Women’s Forum (NAPAWF), The Asian American Education Project (AAEdu), Asian Americans/Pacific Islanders in Philanthropy (AAPIP), the National Council of Asian Pacific Americans (NCAPA), and other AAPI organizations.
