Come Join Us!

Our sense of community is supported by our cultural events, helpful workshops, and gatherings to share our thoughts and dilemmas. We problem solve together and create projects and provide services to help our families thrive.

There are no fees to join our activities and we are not politically aligned with any political party. We support voters’ rights as well as a path to citizenship. We believe that becoming a well-educated voter when marking your ballot, is empowering for our families and communities.

Our work is volunteer-based and in alignment with other BIPOC groups who share our mutual concerns. Collaboration and coalition building provides positive outreach for issues that affect jobs and addresses roadblocks to our community’s peace and prosperity.

Refer to the calendar for the monthly Brain Trust Meetings and register for other activities that may interest you. As a volunteer, we welcome your time and talents . . . come join us!

Why Give?

We fully support coalition diversity building within our BIPOC community to ensure equal representation and civic empowerment in issues that matter to our AAPI community. Our immigrant families should transition to life in Yakima Valley through civic engagement, education, and access to transitional state and federal programs.

Our mantra clearly states our purpose and vision. Join us in our activities and events; support our projects and programs. Thank You!
