Shifting Perspectives on Reproductive Justice
In 2021, the Asian American Organizing Project emphasized expanding knowledge and access to culturally relevant sexual health and wellness, which helped them build momentum and expand their base. 2022 will see their first time canvassing for reproductive Justice. Based in Minnesota, AAOP is a community grassroots organization committed to empowering Asian participation in democracy.
“The stigma around abortion in APIDA (Asian Pacific Islander Desi American) communities is still heavily ingrained in our cultural upbringings. We hope to address these cultural dynamics and work to shift perspectives on reproductive justice by empowering our youth and young people.”
