Program Area

Grassroots Asians Rising is a network of strong hyper-local groups that add up to a national strategy. A number of Foundation grantees participate in Grassroots Asians Rising, including New Breath Foundation and Southeast Asian Collective. In the wake of the spate of anti-Asian violence over the last year, combined with the rise of Asian Americans as an increasingly important voting block, Grassroots Asians Rising’s role as a space for Asian American groups to come together, strategize, and co-organize.

The grant will help support Grassroots Asians Rising to work to build its membership of grassroots organizations led by Asian American Pacific Islander groups across the United States and will provide training and support to those groups.
