WE BELIEVE WHAT WE SEE ON OUR SCREENS SHOULD REFLECT THE WORLD WE WANT TO SEE.

CAPE champions diversity by educating, connecting, and empowering Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) artists and leaders in entertainment and media. CAPE works to create long-lasting and systemic change in Hollywood. With the increasing spotlight on violence against our communities, it is vital that we come together and utilize stories to combat stereotypical, harmful, and dangerous representations of AAPI communities in our entertainment media. 


HOW WE'RE CREATING CHANGE

Through programs like the CAPE New Writers Fellowship and CAPE Leaders Fellowship, CAPE is increasing representation from the writers’ room to the boardroom which will change what we see in our living room.

CAPE has focused on two critical access points: writers and executives. Writers, as content creators, have the power to shape our existing world and introduce us to new ones. In fact, some of the most powerful players in Hollywood -- Shonda Rhimes, Ava DuVernay, Ryan Murphy -- are all writers.  Then creative executives are needed to green light and shepherd great stories through the production pipeline so we can get more AAPI stories and characters onto our screens. This creates an ecosystem where more AAPI actors, directors, and below-the-line talent have opportunities.

We are always trying to find more ways to uplift and champion artists and leaders, and hope to scale the type of services we can provide. 

FUNDS RAISED WILL GO TOWARDS INCUBATING ADDITIONAL INITIATIVES FOR:

A SMALL CONTRIBUTION CAN HAVE A GLOBAL IMPACT

Although the majority of our artists and leaders are in the Los Angeles area, our reach is global. American film and television shows have a global audience and are major players in how we see the world and each other.  Your contribution today will allow CAPE to grow to the next level and scale our impact. 

Receive special invitations to CAPE events and programs in 2022 when you donate $300+ annually or make a monthly donation of $25+!
