Asian American and Pacific Islander women have consistently reported 2-3 times more incidents of harassment and violence than men in the U.S. COVID-19 has only escalated this reality, including the tragic murders in Atlanta of six AAPI immigrant women. In the midst of this spike in violence, a response that centers the lives and needs of AAPI women and elders is urgent and necessary.
The National Asian Pacific American Women’s Forum (NAPAWF) is the only national organization that focuses on building power with AAPI women and girls to influence critical decisions that affect their lives, families and communities. NAPAWF elevates AAPI women and girls to impact policy and drive systemic change in the United States. NAPAWF will continue to mobilize and build power in 14 cities across the United States to create social, political, and economic change for AAPI women and girls.
The National Asian Pacific American Women’s Forum (NAPAWF) will ensure that AAPI women’s issues are covered in the media, particularly at the intersection of anti-AAPI hate and gender. With TAAF's funding, NAPAWF will continue to provide landmark reports on the status of AAPI women and advocate for judicial nominees who will fully recognize AAPI women's rights.
