The National Gender & Equity Campaign (NGEC) is a social justice demonstration project incubated by AAPIP. Through the NGEC, we rally AAPI and philanthropic communities to leverage, mobilize and activate resources to address systemic inequity. 

Our aim is to build a stronger social justice movement driven by those who are most impacted. We support grassroots organizations committed to cultural change and inclusion of gender and equity values and practices. We develop and test capacity building approaches and tools to contribute to those dedicated to building a more just world.


National Gender and Equity Campaing (NGEC) is a project of AAPIP.
