API Middle Tennessee is an Asian and Pacific Islander-serving nonprofit organization. Our mission is to work towards racial justice by building API community, lifting API voices, and unpacking API identities in Middle Tennessee.
We are raising funds for a Community Listening Project that will help us identify the needs of our community. The marginalization of Asian and Pacific Islander communities is often tied to being made invisible so this process will give voice to the issues we face. This process is also important because Asian and Pacific Islander discourse at the national level if often focused on coastal regions, which are vastly different contexts from the American South.
